Opposite Taras Shevchenko National University stands Shevchenko City Garden, the most compact park in Kiev, featuring a large number of statues, plants, and benches. In this small yet vibrant urban oasis, you'll encounter all types--from young students to mature chess players to businessmen on break. Kids will like the miniature train they can ride. Watch the local buskers perform their well-versed acts or admire the statues, including that of Taras Shevchenko--one of the nation's great literary figures.

It is a very nice place to spend time, especially in hot weather. A clean and well maintained park
