When you travel to places where arts and culture is prevalent, you come home with photos, but travel to a place like Kharkov, Ukraine, you come home with experience and a deeper understanding of how the walls of the Kremlin survived there. Most tourists would include this place in their travel itinerary.

What should you expect to see at Kharkov? Well, this place is more of a scientific journey or anything that talks about the past and existing culture in Ukraine. A city that is led by machines, you will most likely meet a lot of locals who are engineers. This is their means to live and has already garnered a good following for investments.

If you are wondering since Kharkov is a rather industrial place, then what could be the tourist attractions in the place? A spiritual journey would not be complete if you would not visit the Chapel of St. Tatiana. This is such a solemn place of worship in Ukraine’s second to the largest city. So better include this in your travel guide.

Aside from cathedrals and places of worship, there are a lot of museums for you to go to as well as boat trips to the Lopan and Kharkov Rivers. Not only this, you can also visit the Kharkiv Circus where a lot of performers are housed. The experience is so wonderful since you get to be in a big dome to watch animals perform.

As you walk the streets in Kharkov you’ll be able to stumble upon yet another grandiose museum that shows military trucks that were used during World War II. They are on permanent display already so you would not miss them should you arrive at an off-season time.

When you think of what clothes to wear, bear in mind that this place is very cold. You need to bring extra thick clothes that would protect you from the chilly breeze. The temperature ranges from -1.8 degrees Celsius during the months of November and even dips lower to around -0.8 degrees Celsius during December. When summer comes and you schedule your trip then, the heat would still be bearable since there still is a cool breeze as compared with really humid places far from Ukraine.
