This is definitely one of the hallmarks and the building that I'd love to see when I visited there!)) The stair shaped building is the Jewish congregation in the city; however, the surrrounding area isn't all Jewish. Overall, they are mainly office building for business purposes.

Karl Marx Prospect

Reviewed By Deigs - Las Vegas, Nevada

hard to imagine that a street is an attraction by itself! However, residents claim that it is the longest street in Ukraine. Colleagues in Zaporoshye claim that Lenin street there is the longest in Ukraine LOL Karl Marx Blvd is interesting and a dream for those that love to walk. There is a lot of construction so be careful. Many interesting building - especially Soviet era. Nice cafes and shops too
