Awesome place to look over the city in Vorskla valley

Awesome place to see part of Poltava, located near Vorskla river. You could also see beautiful landscapes of Ukraine for many kilometers far from Poltava from this hill.

You will probably end up there anyway - this place seems to be regarded as truly beautiful by locals and it is situated on a hill full of other monuments and historic buildings.

A walkable city- This is a great place to stop and drink in the view while simultaneously experiencing a thing of beauty. I enjoyed it with ice cream in my hand from a nearby store.

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.
