On the east side of the Sumska Street, opposite the Opera House, you can see the Victory Public Garden. There used to be an old churchyard cemetery of the Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (Mirronosytska Church) here in the 17th century

In the 1930s the church was pulled down and there started a construction of the Theatre of Mass Musical Show with an auditorium for 4000 seats on its place. Then the construction was stopped, and the foundation was used to build an apartment block and a trolley-bus depot nearby. After the war a public garden was laid here, and in 1947 a fountain with a rotunda was built. It was called the Mirror Stream (architect V. Korzh), which became one of the major city sights.
