Whenever you have a chance to visit Poltava to stroll around this archaic regional town, this White Arbor next to the Uspenskaya cathedral is one of the must. I came here one afternoon in the early December, and it was fantastic! You must come up here to check the view of Poltava whenever the weather is decent!

From The White Arbor you can see views of the lower lying area of Poltava. You can pick out clearly land marks in the distance. It just feels good to stand there and have a good look around. There is a restaurant very close by if you get an appetite.

Something special about this place! Very romantic, and nearby is the famous Poltava Dumpling Sculpture. Also close by is a very cool Go Kart Track.

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. Because Poltava is a small city, you can't really see the skyscrapers like in China or... More

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.
