Kharkiv Travel Guide: 171 reviews and 457 photos

The present architectural pattern of Kharkiv has been developing for more than three centuries and has been influenced by various conditions of the life, habits and traditions of the Ukrainian people as well as of neighboring nations. The city has its own charm: narrow streets with old buildings, comprised of different architectural styles and small yards. In the city"s downtown area, there is a huge and impressive main square, majestic cathedrals and small churches, and a metro (subway), many stations of which are considered works of art.

Kharkiv has six outstanding professional theaters, a circus, several museums and many libraries. It is a very green city, with more than 100 parks within its limits.

Kharkiv has many more clubs, night clubs, disco-clubs, fast foods, restorations, hotels, supermarkets.

There are several universities and many institutes and colleges in Kharkiv. That is why Kharkiv is a city of 100,000 students; and all foreigners are surprised to see so many young people on its streets.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Many more parks, theatres,clubs, night clubs, disco-clubs, fast foods, restorations, hotels, supermarkets.
  • In a nutshell:The local population is peaceful and most hospitable. :)
