Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

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.
