The views of the theatre are absolutely stunning and and you obtain magnificent views from the square. There is an 'avenue of the stars's where famous Ukrainian figures from the arts and literature are celebrated. There are plenty of bars and restaurants in the area

This place is full of history. The architecture, the Opera house, the gardens next to them, all add to the old world charm and ambience to this place. In August it was pleasant, a bit crowded, but not uncomfortable. Worth visiting.
