Freedom Square, Kharkiv

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. Use our Kharkiv online day trip planner to arrange your visit to Freedom Square and other attractions in Kharkiv.
