  • In my opinion is one of the attractions of Ukraine, the huge territory of former estate fully planted various Greens, beautiful pond with decorated with island and a bridge to it. Swans where you can feed with hands. Each plant has an explanatory plaque. The statues are still preserved even with the past. Park conveys the atmosphere of the era when it was created for his wife Sofia.

  • Sofiyivka it is really a nice place. Are murmuring springs and fountains, tall trees create a cool, beautiful sculptures pleasing to the eye. 130 thousands of peasants under the leadership of a talented garden engineer moved the huge granite boulders, turned a small stream in the Great Lakes, flat landscape in the mountains with waterfalls, ravines in mysterious caves with underground river, the lives of real people in the legend, and mythical heroes launched with Olympus directly into the Uman '! Taki Yes! Recommend from Kharkiv to visit Uman Sofiyivka Park in!

  • Sofievka first time. A huge park, striking its magnificence. On the vast territory of the park there are several lakes with swans and ducks, beautiful fountains, small rechuzhki, Rapids, ancient statues, stone vyluny. Can't say for the insane beauty of trees and shrubs (leaves and needles, successive) meandering paths between them. Park beautiful!
