Check out Freedom Square, one of the largest urban squares in Europe, featuring Ukraine's first skyscraper. Landscaped with hundreds of trees, the square has large open spaces and cobblestone walkways. Stroll along the paths of this 12 hectare (30 acre) site and study the Soviet and modern architecture. As you pass between the buildings and green lawns, you'll encounter building blocks set up on different levels, allowing for views of the square. Check the program at the time of your visit if you wish to see one of the concerts, fairs, or marches that often take place here. You can catch a train from one of the two metro stations located at the site. Use our Kharkiv online day trip planner to arrange your visit to Freedom Square and other attractions in Kharkiv.

Freedom Square Reviews
The ”park” part of the square was being renovated so all it had going for it was being a huge car park. more »
Очень надеюсь, что к нашей площади вернётся былое величие. Ведь это действительно важное место для Харьковчан и здесь по прежнему проходят все культурные события города. more »I very much hope that the former greatness will return to our square. After all, it is a really important place for Kharkiv residents and all cultural events of the city are still taking place here.
