  • Altanka is very beautiful. It's now white and very pretty, also historical - it's from the 19th century! You should definitely take a photo in there!  more »
  • Carved gazebo in the center of the city. Became one of the symbols of the city of Sumy. Actually installed it on the place where at the end of the nineteenth century geologists from Petersburg drilled hole trying to find oil, but alas!) Later plot with well bought relative Kharitonenko Lishinskyi, which covered the hole with a metal plate and installed altanku. Has since been instituted a tradition each year on a specific day in pavilions plays brass band, as well as this monument has become a local landmark where people meet, photographed the newlyweds, etc.

  • each time walking on the central place of the city of Sumy, it is not possible to not pay attention to the altanku. Very attractive Arbor it hovers in the air like chaining themselves to the views of others.

  • At the end of XIX century in the city came to the geologists of St. Petersburg, who believed that the find in Sumy petroleum. Appealed to the Sumy Province Council for permission to work in oil production. Zemstvo allowed allow scientists to look for oil and has allocated them a place for burlìnnâ wells in the city center, in front of the same zemskoû upravoû. However, oil geologists have found and drove out of town. Later still, petroleum were found in Sumy region, but in the Interior. About the well could already and forget, if not the husband of the niece of John Kharitonenko Joseph Lischunskui. The Lìŝinskogo had its own garden, which is now a public park, so he bought this piece of land with well and got it in their garden. Joseph Lishinskyi ordered that the well was closed by an iron stove, and it built a gazebo. He did all this because had the hope that in the future there is still discover petroleum [1]. The architect of the Pergola made by Matthew Ŝavelov. Also from that time to the present has tradition-each year at the beach playing wind orchestras.
