The numerous parks of Kiev have always been a source of inspiration for Ukrainians. Whether blanketed with snow or blooming flowers, dull and rainy or green and sunny, these destinations are crowded with people nearly all the time. The capital is called “a green city” for good reason!
Being situated in front of the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kiev, this park is always crowded with students. The park is popular in part because of the street food cafes, where you can get a cheap coffee and burger or have a quick snack during a break from classes. Moreover, most of the locals are delighted with its beautiful scenery.

There is a lot of greenery and benches, it always has a quiet and calm atmosphere. Therefore, the park is a favourite place for parents and small children, as well as students aiming to get some rest. One can marvel at the old buildings of the institute, which are often called the Ukrainian Hogwarts.
