Central Kharkov square surrounded by history

Even when it is a snowy -20 C, beautiful photographs of the surrounding historical buildings such as Annunciation Cathedral make this area worth your time.

This isn't a big square. But it's nice and centrally located downtown. So it's very easy to access other sites from here.

It's not exactly square shaped, but it is large and open. On one end is the giant thermometer, in one area is the statue. The history museum is also on the square.

It's well worth a walk. Very relaxing in the sunshine, there are seats all around. There's a monastery right behind and the History Museum right next to it. A quick stroll downhill and there's the church of the Annunciation and all kinds of shopping close by.
