  • After reconstruction became similar to such parks in Europe. There are rides for children (mainly in the children's area), and adults. Very, very, terrible panic room. In the best sense of the word:) From fear can be v. pants (sorry for the expression but it is so). In General, the beautiful nature, there is space for a snack (but then get ready for queues), music, kids, fun-have it all.

  • If you came to Kharkov, then must visit Park them. Bitter! I har'koskaja itself and steadily once a month there appear. In the Park's great at the ljuble time of the year! Here you can go to the South (there is for both very young and adults) can be and just walk. A good venue for romantic dates, and reviews can help wheel the whole Kharkov! Cool hanging out with friends, family, and during the warm season can even feed the Swans that float in the Lake in the park with your hands! Not very good?

  • We prefered to live in Kharkiv city because of this park. There is no park in the world better than Gorky Park.
  • One of the best local attractions. I strongly recommend going on a cable car and enjoying the view of the park and the city. You can have a stroll with all you family or go for a jog on you own.
  • Absolutely fantastic park, a lifeline for our boys who can happily spend the whole day there. Tree rope walks are brilliant and the instructors excellent, so many playgrounds you could lose yourself.
  • It's a good place, which has a lot of attractions foe young and adults. But it's a crowded place. So if you want to have a romantic evening, you better go somewhere else 😄
  • What a beautiful park..nice ambience
