Historically, this is a University park, but totally open to public now. Quiet and absolutely beautiful in the morning at any season. A bit noisy in the evening, though... Kharkiv Zoo and Dophinarium are insode this park

The park is pretty big, with paths going every which way. On days with good weather, the place is packed. Heaps of places for snacks if you are peckish.

15 degrees below zero. Tall trees skyrocketing from the white desert. It reminds me cartoon "Frozen ". The monument of Tara's Shevchenko with Ukrainian flag on his shoulders get back me to the reality. I am in Kharkov and war not far from here.
