    A relic of the past symbolising friendship between Ukraine and Russia, this is exactly what it says - an arch! But there's really good view over the river, there's a park adjacent, and it's only a sho...  more »

  • Kinda odd statue, It is called "Friendship of nations" (between Ukraine and Russia), but currently this is no friendship at all. There is a small fun-fair at the place, but feels like post-socialist fun-fairs, but the view is good. Nothing special.
  • A Russian-Ukrainian friendship memorial. Funny, right? It's been recently decorated as a rainbow. There is a view point and sometimes there are cultural events. Last time the French Spring festival brought there a live performance of a dancer dancing with a machine.
  • It has recently been decorated as part of Kyiv hosting the Eurovision contest. Sadly, because of the lack of open minds, it isn't likely that the colour will be finished. (Even though the slogan for the contest this year is 'celebrating diversity.)
  • This place supposed to offer good view on the River and Podil (old district). Views are there, but some moments could be disappointing. As there are chip tents which sell alcohol also lots of young people come here with their own bottles
  • Too much USSR. Looks old-fashion, but there is a cool view on Kyiv near the arch.
