Significant arthitecture piece of brutalist and socialist styles. It is absolutely not beautiful so better call it an experience and not attraction. Anyway, if you are in the centre os Harkov, you will not miss it anyway.

The classic example of Soviet architecture. Nothing to deserve to pay much attention. It is situated beside Kharkov University.

I thought this was interesting to see if you're nearby in Freedom Square. But I wouldn't make a special trip just for this. It's just a building.

Unless you are nearby don't make a special trip to see this. Yes it's huge but there is not a lot else to recommend it.

This building is huge if you consider it was build in the 20's ( I was told so, never checked). Practically it was a center for the communist planned economy.

A must for arkitecture lovers! Built in the beginning of 20th century in constructivistic style. Unusual and located just in the very heart of the city! Need renovation though!
