Historic Site · Transportation
Carrying you up or down the Volodymyrska Hill in a matter of minutes, Kiev Funicular links two of the city's historical neighborhoods. Hop aboard the turn-of-the-century funicular, opened in 1905, and ride between the upper old town and the Podil district by the Dnieper River. Try to grab a seat near the front or back of the car to get the best vantage point. The view from the top sweeps over the river and waterfront below.

  • Nothing special. You wait in line and it takes about 3 mins to go up or down. The waiting time could be long if you visit it at the wrong time.  more »

  • Not worth it. I’m a local, and I don’t recommend this. You won’t be impressed. There’s plenty of more interesting f things to do in Kiev.  more »

  • Funicular is as old as my late grandma, nothing to observe there, better to walk up the hill on fresh air, and see the beauty, and not being held in a humid place with only one wish - to get out.
  • Very unique place. Must visit for all tourists
  • Very nostalgic. I think it must be seen.
  • Retro style and modern speed!
  • Great tourist attraction, but no wheelchair and strollers access((
