An excursion to Sofievsky Park in Uman is a unique opportunity to see the real pearl of Ukraine. The park is called a wonderful corner of love, made in the best traditions of palace and park ensembles of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Everybody is here imbued with love, and time seems to stop, nature pacifies and gives beauty and tranquility. The history of the park is fascinating. Created by a Polish aristocrat, the owner of the city of Uman Stanislav Pototsky, he became a gift to his beloved wife, to the beautiful Greek woman Sofia Vitt-Pototskaya on her name day in 1800. Once Pototsky together with the talented Polish military engineer Ludwig Metzel went hunt these places. They ended up in a ravine with many underground springs and the granite coming out to the surface. Nature itself suggested the idea of construction a unique park, not inferior in beauty to European ones. Along the bed of the Kamenka river the main composition is located. Remembering the origin of your beloved Pototsky asks to use ancient Greek motifs in the design of the park, immersing visitors to plots from the "Iliad" and "Odyssey"
The park is divided into several thematic zones:
Arboretum "Sofiyivka" is a research institute, which is a member of the Department of General Biology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
