Returning to Kharkiv has helped me relive my first time experiences. The Schevchenko monument is quite a site and although you won't think it at first, later, you will appreciate its intricacies and and placement. Well worth seeing.

Good for walking during all seasons and weather, of course better when it is warm. Can't miss monument to Shevchencko - one of the greatest monuments ever!

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.

A lovely downtown park - with Shevchenko and football monuments, fountains, cinema stars alley, the meridian (paving on the floor) and a couple of mediocre-to-good restaurants and cafes.

A nice place to walk, though I find that they have cut too many trees to build all the cafes. But in general it is located nicely and worth a visit!

Went there in Sept 13, and will go there again...It is a must see park, good place to walk with your better half or good date. Good backdrop for your photos.

A pleasant enough stroll, and popular with the young folk of Kharkiv. Oddly, and unlike British parks, lying or walking on the grass is forbidden.

This is an impressive monument in wide open square. It is great location for photos with various angles for various backdrops.

Paved walkways, little kiosks and playgrounds. Lots of trees and flowers. This park is huge and butts up to the Maidan square. A great place to walk with your partner, or sit and talk.

Nice place to visit in Kharkov. Fontains and flowers, Shevchenko's monument are nice. It is better to visit the park not during holidays and weekends.
