It is an amazing monument, with the most wonderful view of the city. On a nice sunny day it a great place to sit and relax. I often walk there, I've also been when its -10c and it's still amazing . I do recommend going when the weather is nice. And it's FREE.

Bila Biexiedka one of the most amazing architects I've seen, although it lacks colours, it still is one of the most roman, Greek type of monuments that represents Poltava, here on you can also use the observatory to see the other side of Poltava.

Not much to say about this except there is an excellent view of Poltava and the surrounding country side. I believe its where Alexandra the greats horse lost one of its shoes, I am not surprised if it was trying to descend the steep sided hill Worth a look on a clear day.

The Arbor is a nice monument, reminding same structure in Odessa. It is overlooking the district called Podol and offers some nice feeling of open space and freshness. There is construction site nearby so it is not completely comfortable, but still beautiful.

Perfect place to make a picture of Poltava. I was with my girlfriend and she was more than happy. In the afternoon the white arbor looks better thanks to colored lamps

Don’t expect too much from this sight. The White Arbour is just a simple semi-circular colonnade of eight pillars crowned by a non-sophisticated attic. It bears Ivan Kotlyarevskiy’s [brilliant Ukrainian writer and dramatist of XVIII-XIX, born in Poltava] words from Natalka-Poltavka play: “Once there is an agreement in the family and peace and calmness, that’s where people are happy and...
