Featuring forests, lakes, and artistically landscaped paths, Sofiyivska Park represents a vast botanical garden and a recreational site that sees some half a million visitors annually. Founded in 1796, its original purpose was to depict events from Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. You can expect to encounter grottos and wildlife here, as well as ornamental fountains, gazebos, and food stands. Walkways showcase a total of 2,000 different local and exotic plants. Various activities also happen here, such as romantic lake cruises and games for children, depending on the season. The park stretches across a 156 hectare (385 acre) area, so there's plenty to do and see here.

  • Sofievka was several times: every visit leaves different emotions of the impression (but always positive). Many great places for a photographer or artist, you can just wander around and get some fresh air, you can enjoy classic beauties of European Park. In some ways, reminiscent of Petersburg, or Vienna or Krakow. Everything is organized and adequately supported. If someone even travel to Uman on the hour, the hour is worth to spend in sofievka.
