10 Things to Do in Cherkasy That You Shouldn't Miss

September 11, 2017 Leonarda Pillsbury

Cherkasy (Ukrainian: Черка́си, pronounced [tʃɛrˈkɑsɪ]; Polish: Czerkasy), or Cherkassy (Russian: Черка́ссы [tɕɪrˈkasɨ]), is a city in central Ukraine. It is the capital of the Cherkasy Oblast (province), as well as the administrative center of the surrounding Cherkasky Raion (district) within the oblast. The city itself is also designated as its own separate raion within the oblast. It is not to be confused with the Russian city of Cherkassk which is on the Don River to the east.

Hill of Fame

Reviewed By chaiminded - Hadera, Israel

A place only the Russians could build. Mother Russia looking down on thousand names of those who died in defense of the city in WW II when it was essentially destroyed by the Nazis (which is why it is so modern looking despite being nearly 500 years old.) Climb the hill on which Mother Russia stands and you get a fantastic view of the Dnieper River and the surrounding area which gives you a good perspective of the city. Still, it is nothing that particularly moved me as it was just one more Soviet attempt at self aggrandizement which is repeated in Kiev to much greater effect.

Shherbiny House

Reviewed By Jsleos - Chicago, Illinois

Scherbina was a merchant who built this as a private residence in the late 19th century--after the Soviet Revolution, it was turned into the civil registration house, and it still serves this function today. It really is a beautiful building, and worth the trip if you're in Cherkasy.

Yuvileyniy Park

Reviewed By Anastasiya S

Great location!
If you will attend, make sure to visit must-see places there: sculpture alley (you can play a game by first guessing what is shown on each sculpture, and then - Reading what the author wanted to show); bridge with a very high slope (which made it sooo hard to push a babycot up, but really worth it) - with a great view all around; working open air cinema (not a good state, but terrific atmoshepre), rope park (much cheaper then in many other places)... Great place to spend a day!

White Lotus Temple

Reviewed By Anastasiya S

Well, first of all I would like to recomend to leave the car (if you came by car) somewhere in the city, and take a walk to this Temple. Because the walk will be through kind of rural area (many cottages) - and then you suddenly see this temple - the impression will be unforgettable. And there is also not many parking space... so why not going by foot rather then disturbing the locals?
Excursions are held on Sundays, we were there on Saturday. But still it was a good walk. There is also a beach near it.
Also, if you want to practice some yoga or meditation therapy, as well as martial arts - they organise 3-day sessions several times a year (as was written on the poster outside). So you can google the details.

Музей очень понравился! Очень богатая коллекция экспонатов, рассказывающих о всём, что связано с этим регионом. Музей достоин второго посещения, так как за один раз осмотреть все, что здесь представлено, практически невозможно.

LUBAVA

Reviewed By LizabethPro - Ukraine

Торговый центр Lubava был построен пару лет назад , но не смотря на это он все еще не потерял свою популярность среди жителей Черкасс.
Здесь можно найти много разных магазинов с одеждой и аксессуарами , маленькие кафешки , продуктовый магазин. На четвертом этаже распологаються боулинг , кинотеатры и ресторан.
В общем, в Любаве можно хорошо провести время, но для этого надо будет запастись деньгами , так как это не дешевый ТЦ :)

Kremenchug Reservoir

Reviewed By Anastasiya S

Well, the bridge looks very much the same as in Kaniv (up to the north), and quite similar to the one in Kiev.
Worth crossing by car on a very low speed to look around=). If you go by foot - the stepway is in the middle of the bridge and surrounded by cement railing (or how can i call it... (not high, but not good for looking around).
But! Near the bridge you can turn to numerous Beaches... And take a great look on the bridge itself. Very romantic.
