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.

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.

  • Visited this park since childhood, his whole life about 7 times. I plan to come back next spring, so the place is very beautiful, romantic, well kept. Liked absolutely everything there, from the famous legend about how this was created. Very beautiful nature which perfectly monitored and treated sea flower clearings, secluded summer houses and small waterfalls, and the opportunity to take a ride on the boat.

  • Autumn big size pairs and no less romantic. Park beauty captivates at first sight and a desire to stay there for quite a long time I didn't leave. A wonderful place to stroll with your loved ones.

  • Recently visited Sofeevskom Arboretum, where he was struck by the beauty of nature. There are many interesting places (ponds, fountains, etc.), where you can make cool photo. The Park is a great spot for wedding photo shoots.
