“QR-codes – a worldwide practice. And today we have made another step to ensure that the Kharkiv became more modern. Matrix codes can help visitors to learn more about our city, and something new will gather Kharkivens”, noted Zgurskaya.

As the author of the project for the establishment of QR-codes Mikhail Demshin said, initially such codes will appear this autumn on all the city’s iconic objects, the so-called “seven wonders of Kharkiv”: at the monument to Taras Shevchenko, Assumption, Annunciation and Intercession cathedrals, in the house with a spire on the Square Constitution and Gosprom.
