  • 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

  • The best park ever! Everything for kids and parents: numerous playgrounds and attractions all ages, food opportunities, trees and squirrels around, restrooms, million benches, clean and safe environment. Little train for kids goes around the park showing the best spots. Conclusion: one of the best places in the Kharkiv city.
  • So. It's a huge park with good infrastructure in the centre of Kharkiv. I would say that the mayor did a big job with it: it's free, fancy looking, clear park with different activities for children and adults. You can jog, ride bicycle, play some sport games, just walking around or take a food in one of many restaurants. I recommend to visit it if you are from Ukraine. But if you are from Europe, you will not see anything special or new
  • Great place for refreshments...also can enjoy live performances...good restaurants and amazing rides and many more
  • Awesomeness at its best. Best for spending some good time with loved ones.
  • Perfect place for family weekend or meeting outdoors with friends. Amusement park, indoor entertainment zone for children, different performances at weekends on the main stage, different cafees or snack bars. Can be crowded especially on weekends. But you can find more calm places more close to the forest zone.

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.
