For those who want to immerse themselves in the world of history and architecture, the village of Sharivka near Kharkiv seems to be the perfect place to do so. If you are planning a trip from Kyiv, we recommend that you book a bus trip Kyiv Kharkiv in advance, and then you can get to the palace directly from the center of Kharkiv by minibus or taxi.




History of the Koenig Palace


The first mention of the Sharivsky Palace dates back to the XIX century. The palace was built by order of the famous industrialist and philanthropist Peter Koenig. This architectural monument has been fascinating with its contours and history for more than a century.


The palace has witnessed numerous historical events, ranging from receptions in honor of famous personalities to the difficult times of the Second World War.


There is a legend associated with the Sharivsky Palace near Kharkiv known as the "Legend of the Ruins". According to this legend, the palace was built in the 18th century for a rich and influential nobleman named Yakov Sharazin. The palace was incredibly beautiful and luxurious, with majestic halls, beautiful gardens and artistic treasures.


However, one day a terrible tragedy happened. Lightning struck during a thunderstorm, and the palace caught fire. The fire consumed the entire majestic building, and only ruins remained. Since then, the palace has been forgotten, and its ruins have become a place where strange sounds have been heard and supernatural phenomena have been seen.


Legend has it that the soul of Yakiv Sharazin has not left this place, and he wanders among the ruins of his former palace. People who approach the Sharazin Palace at night claim to hear his moaning and see light moving around the ruins. This legend adds to the mystery and secrecy of this historic site in Ukraine.
