In the 1870-ies city's deputies desided to sell existed at that time waste ground to private property. But during the visit to Kiev in 1876, the Brazilian Emperor Pedro II, noticed that the city authorities very prudently left in front of the University land as a reserve for the future park. No one objected the guest and in 1890 there was founded a park named University Park.

In 1896 monument was erected to the Emperor Nicholas, and the park was renamed to Nikolaev. Also at the Park 3 fountains were built which are located on the same places to this day. After the revolution of 1917 the park was no longer a welcoming place: the fountains were clogged and dried up, benches were stolen, the monument to Nicholas was demolished and sent to the smelter, beautiful lights aslo went to scrap.

Only in 1939, the Park was named after the poet.

The smallest park in Kiev is quite popular among different types of visitors. Students love to spent time here, already in the morning "older generation" reserve benches to read a newspaper and to play chess during the day. At the afternoon business people come here to have a lunch, and when evening comes, love couples spread romance in the park.

In the park there is always something interesting going on, it could be either an organized pillow fight or Salsa Open Air Event.

In the park you will find a Classic Grandma sculpture.

One of the most well-kept parks of Kiev. With new benches, cafes, chess players and a large Playground. Shaded, clean, comfortable. People only a day too much.

Один из самых ухоженных парков Киева. С новыми интересными скамейками, кафе, шахматистами и большой детской площадкой. Тенистый, чистый, уютный. Людей только днем многовато.

This is by far one of the best places in the city center. It has nice benches, places to drink a cocktail or soft drinks and is generally a cultural hub. Sometimes you can even meet someone playing a piano in the middle of the night. Great place to chill!

A legendary park, awesome architecture around (Shevchenko University etc.), but really noisy. Definitely try ice-cream by the fountain, it's good. Overall, a good place to meet, but not to rest.

Popped in on the weekend in the process of Cycling, before couple of years have not visited this Park, I was pleasantly surprised ???? Cleaned, refitted, put interesting benches in General have created a nice atmosphere. Even the fixation of prilagaemom the closet did ???? you can Often stumble upon live music, coffee, snacks all for languid and easy holiday. Good place for a date or get-togethers.

Заскочил на выходных в процессе езды на велосипеде, до этого пару лет не посещал этот парк, был приятно удивлен ���� Вычистили, переоборудовали, поставили интересные лавочки в общем создали приятную атмосферу отдыха. Даже ремонт в прилягающем клозете сделали ���� Часто можно наткнуться на живую музыку, кофе, перекусы всё для томного и легкого отдыха. Хорошее место для свидания или посиделок небольшой компанией.

Clean park in city downtown. You can take some coffee here but it's not acceptable for running.

Lively and vibrant atmosphere. A lot of funny original park benches. Delicious burgers are sold from the van in the southern part of the park.

A piece of green just in the downtown, lots of branches, the most known monument of "Taras Shevchenko", should be visited on evening.
