A Resort City Myrhorod Reviews
Good Memories Apr 11, 2017
Myrhorod, a resort city, is located in the very center of Ukraine, in Poltava region, on the picturesque banks of the Khorol – an old quiet river of Ukraine. So you can easily get a lot of pleasant experience , if you choose to spend a vacation in Myrhorod. We admired the clean air, favorable climate, unique healing water and the hospitality of the locals will not leave anyone indifferent. Myrhorod mineral water is included into the list of the world’s best mineral waters.
We enjoyed visiting the spa parks with interesting and unique sculptures representing the heroes of the works of Nickolay Gogol.
The Myrhorod fountains and tree-lined avenues, the spa birch groves, as well as the city historical buildings, were cool places to visit.
We managed to visit several places of interest:
- the district council building dating back to 1912;
- Assumption Cathedral at Myrhorod resort;
- St. Panteleimon’s Chapel on the territory of Gogol Spa;
- the suspension bridge at Mirgorod resort;
- the monument to Gogol on the platform of the railway station;
- David Guramishvili literary memorial museum;
- the local lore museum.
They were all great places to visit and to explore.
Here is what Andrew Evans, who had done some in-depth research and managed to capture the essence of Ukrainian culture, wrote about this city in the book "Ukraine", Brandt Travel Guides, 2013:
“Myrhorod is an agreeable spa town that has a relaxed atmosphere and a growing number of amenities for tourists, but remains wholly off the beaten track as far as foreign visitors are concerned. The main draw for Ukrainians is the spa complex which sits on both banks of the sluggish River Khorol. In the summer months people from all over the former USSR flock to Myrhorod to heal everything from stomach aches to radiation sickness at the various spa facilities.”
