This is clearly the romantic centre of Kharkiv as there are couple everywhere - proposing, getting married or just kissing. For me it looks best at night when it is beautifully lit and is still as busy with those couples!!

Visited on 27 Oct 2013 as soon as I arrived in Kharkov, here's where the magic begins. Here's where MARRIAGES AND WEDDING TAKE PLACE even in the rain! I personally saw a cute couple on a Sunday evening in the rain proposing to each other love!!) How WONDERFUL AND SWEET WAS THAT?! NEVER SAW ANYTHING LIKE THAT IN THE WORLD... More

Nice place to hide from the dizzying city in the park. At night beautiful illumination. The place where married couples are usually take their photos.

I thought was a really beautiful way to display a fountain. It is nothing really exciting, but it is nice to see at least once. And it's a great place to go just to sit and talk.

It's obvious that those disappointed don't appreciate what they are looking at. It needs to be seen after dusk in the evening to appreciate the beauty of what is a unique victory memorial of the second world war, it was built in 1947 and at night the fountain and archway are lit with changing coloured projected lights. The 'mirror stream'... More

Very disappointing. It's a sad little fountain. But the locals seem very fond of it so there's that.

I walked past this fountain during the day and if you did not know what you were looking for you would walk straight past it. Not very spectacular but it is a photo opportunity.

I don't understand why it considered to be "the symbol of Kharkov" when city has so many great places and great architecture. In my opinion it's an average fountain and does not worth the special visit unless you are walking between Metro Istorichnyi Musey and Metro Universitet (Mirror Stream located right across the Opera Theater). While you are in the... More

It is a good place to visit on your trip for the city break. It is situated near the upper end of Sumskaya street surrounded by beautiful garden. I loved to have my ice-cream there after long walk, to watch the city life around and chat with local buddies.
