    Fine you can relax with all the family and friends. Admire fountains, Lake with live swans and ducks, to be photographed in their background. Go on the rides will not only kids but also adults. Youth riding through the Park on roller skates, bicycles, scooters and so on. Cafes in the Park will offer a pleasant rest after an active riding and celebration in the Park

    Not a lot of attractions for adults, but those that have are good. Have been on a roller coaster and Ferris wheel. Wheel-the controversial attraction. Is 17.5 minutes in the heat is not very cool. Most likely the best ride in the evening, when the city lights. And so cute location for photo and good children's atmosphere

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.
