Kharkiv Things to Do: 91 reviews and 211 photos


Theatre Square starts across from the theatre itself. It appeared at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries on the site of the former defense earthworks. The square acquired its name in the early 19th century, when the city drama theatre was opened, and a public garden was laid here in 1876. Its eastern edge faces Poetry Square, where in 1904 the first-in-Ukraine monument to Pushkin was unveiled, and five years later a monument to M. Gogol turned up on the opposite side of the public garden (both monuments were created by sculptor B. Edwards).
