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.

    Of course the area impresses with its size. Holidays area becomes the center of the celebrations of the city. Fairs are organised at the square. The Christmas and new year's holidays put a huge Christmas tree and organize more exhibitions, for example ice sculptures. In General, it is a central place for entertainment of all the townspeople.

    The largest square in Europe. The main historical attraction of Kharkiv. Next to it are historical and new gems of our city. Oldest in Ukraine Karazinskiy University (1704), two buildings opposite each other. Monument to socialist realism-Gosprom. Shevchenko garden Zoo and Dolphinarium. Hotels-Kharkov (one of the oldest in Kharkov) and new-Kharkiv Palace (built by Erro-2012, modern and comfortable). There are a variety of shops-Symbol (cool branded clothing and shoe shop), Citrus (electronics store), other shops for every taste. Multiple power outlets-Capri restaurant (a huge summer playground, with a good European cuisine), Ti AMO (one of the oldest cafes in) other institutions for different budgets. The Central streets of the city of Sumy Home Building Tips (Office of the Governor, the regional and municipal councils). Further along the street, various restaurants and shops. Great place for Kharkiv dwellers and guests of our city.

Where to stay in Kharkiv

A major industrial center, Kharkiv mostly caters to business travelers visiting the city for only a day or two. Budget accommodations can be hard to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. Book ahead if you plan to stay near the city center, where elegantly furnished hotel rooms come with free Wi-Fi, secure parking, and access to safe deposit boxes. For something less expensive, check out the city's hostels, which offer small but tidy rooms with shared restrooms and common dining areas.
