Full description
Sofiyevka Park is a model of free landscape Ukrainian composition. It represents integrity of the creative ideas and elaborated interconnection of landscape, water, plants, various constructions and sculptures. Every detail in the park plays its own aesthetic and functional role.

It is a combination of artificial grottos, waterfalls, mountain picks, channels, stone labyrinths, with fountains, pavilions, garden-houses, sculptures and marble statues of ancient gods, goddesses, philosophers and poets.

Architecture of some buildings in the park will remind you of the miniature versions of some famous places in Europe such as Entrance Gate (1850-1852) by architects A. Stakenschneider and I. Makutin; flora pavilion (1842-44) by architects Rapponey and Stakenschneider; Grotto of Venus (1796-1800) representing an ancient temple with the statue of Venus of Melos; Renaissance-style pink pavilion on the Island of Love (1850-52); Amsterdam lock (1796-1800) and China garden house (1841) and many others.
