Dear guests of Ovis Hotel if you are planning a long visit to the first capital or if you find several free hours in your busy schedule we suppose you should get to know one of the largest cities of Ukraine. We would like to bring to your attention the best places for walking in Kharkov.
1. Freedom Square
In 1926 the largest square (for that period) in Europe was built in the central part of the city under the guidance of F. E. Dzerzhinsky, its territory makes 11 ha. Regional Administration building, one of the oldest universities – V. N. Karazin Kharkov National University, and Gosprom, a notable landmark and symbol of Kharkov constructivism, are located around the square. Today Freedom Square is in the list of twenty world`s largest squares. Main festivals and concerts are held on Freedom Square every year as well as trade fairs where you may buy different sweets or souvenirs.
2. Zerkalnaya Struya.
Zerkalnaya Struya is a fountain located in the public garden in Sumskaya Street. Even little pupils draw this notable landmark as the main symbol of the city at the drawing lessons. The fountain is the most popular during the warm season. Young and old people meet around it. Someone escapes the heat enjoying fresh air, and another one enjoys beauty of the water changing its colors. After all every tourist visiting Kharkov should make a picture near Zerkalnaya Struya.
