#1 Ternopil Lake

Yes, it is unbelievably beautiful and amazing. Ternopil – is the only city in Ukraine that has such a beautiful pond in the city center. It was created by the founder of the city - Yan Tarnovsky in 1558. Wide stairs, which lead to the pier, divided a cascade of artificial fountains, that are named in honor of their creator “The tears of Gronsky”. In 1968, Ternopil got a ferry called “The hero Tanzorov”, named after one of the city’s liberators from the German occupation during WWII (1944), Grugorij Tanzorov. Today, the Ternopil Lake is one of the most beautiful sights in the city.

#2. Parks

The city amazes me with its beautiful green surrounding. Anywhere you go or stay in Ternopil is filled with vegetation,, that will make you feel that you are constantly in a park. Chestnuts in the city center, greenery, willows by the water‌ This is also one of the magnificent city sights.

#3. Spiritual centers


Look on the map

There are more than 70 churches in Ternopil. In comparison: in Kiev, where the population is about 14 times bigger than Ternopil’s, only has 158 churches. We can truly and honestly say, that is the city of Religiousness and Faith.

#4. Ukrainian language

This is the only city in Ukraine, where the majority of the population(98%) is Ukrainian. Our live, charming and real language echoes here a thousand times more often than, in any other part of Ukraine. Here, we honor Bandera and often people greet each other with words, such as “Glory to Ukraine!� Here, people genuinely love their country and maintain the oldest traditions and customs.

#5. Ternopil nights

Strong odor of the night, calmness, peacefulness, empty streets at night, dull lights, that the calm water reflects. Silence‌.

#6 The island of Love

The island of love was built in 1956 on the Ternopil Lake. A picture, no one can forget – willows that lower their branches in the water, surround the small island. It is really hard to imagine something more beautiful, then the sunset on this island.

#7. Theater square

Recently, it has recently been decided to add a variety of colors to this place. We can see it being done, due to the new colorful paving on the central square.

Children’s happy laughter and smiles on their parents faces – it’s a good enough reason to spend many hours here, on the central square.

A little bit about the marvelous Ternopil city Ternopil was first mentioned in 1540, when the Polish King Sigismund I gave a charter to the crown hetman Jan Amor Tarnowski on the city foundation and owning the lands around it.
