Sumska Street (Ukrainian: Сумська, Sums'ka; Russian: Сумская, translit. Sumskaya) is the main street of Kharkiv, Ukraine. It stretches through the centre of the city to the Constitution Square.

Sumskaya street appeared as a road from the Kharkiv fortress to Sumy and used to call “Sums’ky shliakh”. However, in a short time the road was surrounded by the buildings and turned to vibrant street; in the 20th century it became the thoroughfare of the city.

The street is served by Kharkiv Metro, by the stations Universytet (University) and Istorychnyi Muzei (Museum of History).
