Mykolaiv, also known as Nikolaev or Nikolayev, is a city in southern Ukraine, the administrative center of the Mykolaiv Oblast. Kick off your visit on the 29th (Sun): get a taste of the local shopping with Kherson Regional Art Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Catherine's Cathedral, take in the pleasant sights at Flotskiy Boulevard, then test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at St. Joseph Catholic Church. On the 30th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get to know the resident critters at Nikolaev Zoo, find something for the whole family at Skazka Children Park City, and then pause for some photo ops at Monument to St. Nicholas.
