Feofaniya is a park located in the historical neighborhood on a tract near the southern outskirts of Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. The neighborhood is located in the administrative Holosiivskyi Raion amidst the neighborhoods of Holosiiv, Teremky, Pyrohiv and Khotiv. The park's total area is about 1.5km2. In Feofania was built the first Soviet computer MESM by Lebedev team.Feofaniya was first mentioned in 1471 as Lazorivschyna, which at the time belonged to an owner named Khodiki. The name is said to derive from a monk named Lazar. In the 17th century, the area was referred to as Shakhravschyna .The modern name Feofaniya dates back to 1803 when Feofan Shiyanov settled in the area, set aside for charity purposes. During the 1860s, Feofaniya belonged to the St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery in central Kiev. Buildings built in the area were constructed in the Ukrainian Baroque style, however, they did not survive. In 1919, Feofaniya was converted to the Soviet state farm, and later transformed into the main observatory for the Institute of Botany of the Ukrainian Academy of Science.

  • It's a scenic park. It's a bit far from the city center but is an amazing place to spend time with friends or have a nice walk alone. There is a small pond with a gazebo. A lot of area to walk and play around. There are some snacks shop as well for some quick bites. Great place to have a picnic and click some photos with the lush greenery.
  • Oh my oh my.! What can I say about the park, I can say its one of the most beautiful and best parks that Ukraine and Kiev have has and have ever had. Its the best I can say. Its a little far away from the Main city but its a very peaceful place and the views that you will have there at the park its just one of the greatest views you will have. Its a big park for sure but what can I say the much you will see the more you would love the place. Fresh air, Fresh water, Fresh Environment, Fresh and Rich nature. Just amazing what I can say. I haven’t been there so many times but believe me each and every Sunday or Saturday I wish I have been there and spent some time with the pure nature. I really recommend you to visit the place with friends, family or someone special, you really will love the place I am sure.
