HYDJET++ is a Monte Carlo event generator merging parametrized soft part inspired by hydrodynamics with hard part containing jets. It has been successful to describe particle production in Pb+Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=2.76$ TeV energies. In this poster we present for the first time the particle spectra and collective flow for top LHC energy $\sqrt{s_{NN}}=5.02$ TeV Pb+Pb collisions. Specifically we used the HYDJET++ model version 2.4 to simulate spectra of charged particles, $D^0$ and $J/\psi$ mesons and related $v_2$ and $v_3$ azimuthal flow harmonics. The particle spectra and flow haromincs are studied in different centrality bins ranging from 0-10% up to 30-50% centrality in midrapidity region for charged particles and $D^0$ mesons and in forward rapidity in case of $J/\psi$ mesons. The simulated results have been compared to experimental data from the ALICE and ATLAS experiments in order to tune the HYDJET++ generator to get the most optimal agreement with the data.
