Mirror Stream fountain, Kharkiv

4.6
Right in front of the opera house look for Mirror Stream fountain, a fountain framed by white arches that commemorates victory in World War II. Situated among lush gardens, the spot is considered one of the seven wonders of Ukraine. You'll witness a display of shapes, figures, and artificial fog created from numerous water streams. After dark, a light show accompanies the display. You can spend a little time people-watching here, as the fountain is also one of the main meeting points for locals.

  • This place is one of the main symbols of the city. The fountain was built in Soviet times. A couple of years ago it was reconstructed. Now the fountain is beautifully illuminated in the evenings colourful lights. The fountain is located on the central street of Sumy. Opposite the Opera House. Near the entrance to the Garden, where there are Shevchenko Zoo and Dolphinarium. Fountain is a pretty square, in which a lot of greenery and shops. Another attraction of this place is the Church of the myrrh-bearers, the new church built dad years ago. This place is always a lot of campers. A great place to selfi and photo.

  • "Revived" Fountain-City business card! Go and relax in the evening near the fountain, the Church Wives Mironov very successfully blended behind in the overall ensemble.

  • Beautifully situated beside the city center a monument to opera and theatre building. No flashy architecture, you can talk or you can sit around and relax. Nice pictures you can add to your memories away.

  • Lovely area to walk on the edge of the central square and lovely tree lined park. Caught it mid October on a unseasonably warm evening.
  • Beautiful place, I have visited Kharkiv the first time and I like it so much, each one should visit every sights of this nice city and this place one of that sight ☺️
  • Mirror Stream is the symbolic landmark of Kharkiv. Nice fountain and coolness in the summer hot. Different time epochs are combined in the architecture around. Concrete cubic Opera House, snow-white Orthodox church, majestic building of the KGB, old and modern houses.
  • Just a figure on the street . it looks nice though
  • This place is amasing as it changes colours and you can get married in the church behind the Mirror stream and have wedding photos taken under the Mirror Stream as water fountains shoot water out at the back and the stream runs underneath were you are standing for photos . It is a beautiful place for photos

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.
