Life in Kharkiv is changing each season. In winter there is plenty of snow so students prefer spending their time at home, in nightclubs or restaurants. They visit theaters and cinemas more often when this time of the year starts. Summertime is beautiful here. There are many parks, open-air nightclubs, verandas at cafes that are open so students tend to spend much of their time exploring the city.
