These days Kharkiv can boast a vibrant hipster culture, rich art and musical scene. This is one of the biggest Eastern Ukrainian cities, which has rich history and cultural heritage. It used to be the center of Ukrainian cultural life and home of prominent Ukrainian science and engineering schools. Sadly, Kharkiv has suffered heavily during WW 2, so it has fairly little to show architecturally-wise. In our days it is a city of soviet monumentalism and rejuvenating Ukrainian traditions.
Kharkiv dining scene is undergoing some major development at the moment. There are many new restaurants, cafe and bars offering a wide variety of international cuisines and traditional Ukrainian dishes with a modern twist. Let us visit some of the most popular Kharkiv dining spots to enjoy fine foods and drinks.
