Check out Freedom Square, one of the largest urban squares in Europe, featuring Ukraine's first skyscraper. Landscaped with hundreds of trees, the square has large open spaces and cobblestone walkways. Stroll along the paths of this 12 hectare (30 acre) site and study the Soviet and modern architecture. As you pass between the buildings and green lawns, you'll encounter building blocks set up on different levels, allowing for views of the square. Check the program at the time of your visit if you wish to see one of the concerts, fairs, or marches that often take place here. You can catch a train from one of the two metro stations located at the site.

  • I remember our area when it was empty, no square. Then really was a visible size. But with the square it became more comfortable. Very beautiful buildings around, so solemnly. I love this place and I am proud of our attractions.

  • Typical soviet type central square. Mainly office buildings. Not very inspiring. May be far better in summer, but pretty bleak in November.
