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.

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...
