Sofia Pototsky was a legendary beauty, and Uman’s stunning Sofiyivka Park is her husband Count Felix’ monument to her physical perfection. Having bought Sofia for two million zloty from her former husband (she had been sold into slavery at an early age by her parents), the Polish count set to landscaping this 150-hectare site with grottoes, lakes, waterfalls, fountains, pavilions and 500 species of tree. The result, completed in 1802, was Ukraine’s answer to Versailles.
