  • It's a very nice place to go out with your friends especially for foreign students it's a must visit place you get a good idea about the advanced culture and technology of Ukraine and lot of good rides plus there's special events in there during new year, Christmas, Halloween etc. Not only rides but many nice souvenir shops and food stalls the cable car is a must during the sunset time.
  • The best place in the centre of city for enjoying...little overcrowded on weekends.You can reach there in trolley bus,trams etc. Night view is amazing with the light works. The decorations and art works changes with on going celebrations. In summer its fully covered with flowers. There are a lot of rides and areas of games. There are many neat and clean toilets. You can get snacks,icecreams etc from the shops there.The Gaintwheel gives you a wideview from the top of the city. There is a cable car which takes you to Sarzhyn Yar. A Dinosaur park was also opened last year. You can spent free time enjoying the beauty of the park and have fun. One of the centre of attractions in kharkiv.
