A lot of young people. Besides that and the historical role of the square in the recent years, so 5 minutes are enough. The surrounding buildings are quite strange mixture of different times. Check and go.

Quite a few important events in the recent history of Ukraine have taken place here. The trade building on one side has finally been cleaned up after the Maidan revolution. A great place to see the people of the city, especially on a weekend.
