Nice Park

This park was kind of cool. It's a nice one for walking. I thought it was worth going to see at least once.

This free park is a large recreational park rather than a botanical garden ( a place where plants and trees are normally labelled so that visitors can recognise them). Coming from London with its large but very plain parks, this place I found very interesting. There are walking trails, a spring and pool area where many people were cooling off... More

We decided to visit this park (metro Botanicheskiy Sad/ Botanical Garden) based on other reviews. To our surprise we didn't find this place as traditional Botanical Garden. Most locals (unless they live in this area) does not know about existence of Botanical Garden in Karkov and does not consider this park as a Botanical Garden. I also don't understand why... More

Well worth the visit to see all plants. The ticket price was so cheap and the show was so great. A must see if you are ever in Kharkiv.

A real different experience. We saw locals ''doing their own thing'' This park has undergone major renovation and is a very interesting place to see. There is a natural cold water spring , where people swim everyday of the year. The Wooden Church is well worth a walk up the hill to . Remember to cover your head with a... More

Nature, the source. Everything is very well-groomed. In good weather there are a lot of people, but you can retire in trails. Bring bottel to take some water with you

If you want to relax yourself and get away from the hassle and bustle of the hard city life this is the perfect place to go. Though finding it was a little difficult once there you feel like you are in a completely different place. it takes you out of the city , right in the middle of the city.... More
