  • Kharkovites like brag, they say, is the biggest square in Europe, although it is not so. But the area is really great, especially if you consider it together with the adjacent Park areas. Architectural area emit building Soviet-era konsturktivizma. Here the famous concrete Derzhprom (House of State industry, not to be confused with Gazprom), and the University, and the building of the oblast administration. From the monument to Lenin now left alone the memories and the intrigue around what monument will put in its place. Around the subject of disputes and conflicts rage on, the project, which is currently endorsed by sparked outrage. In the life of the city area plays a central role, there are mass celebrations and protests. The holidays are here often pass the fair with attractions and stalls where you can eat something delicious and drink tea or mulled wine. Beautiful Lee area? If the model of beauty the architecture before the revolution 1917 year, then no, it is in the spirit of Soviet era. But beautiful and monumental.
