The Ukrainian capital has always been one of Europe’s most visually stunning and photogenic cities. In the coming year, an ambitious architectural project promises to provide residents and visitors alike with a new place to enjoy sweeping Kyiv landscapes.
Work is already underway on a pedestrian and cycling bridge that will link the Arch of Friendship with St. Volodymyr’s Hill in the heart of the city, offering what promise to be impressively panoramic views of Kyiv.
The bridge will be 210 meters in length with separate pedestrian and cycling lanes. It will feature a number of viewing platforms where people will be able to look down towards the riverside Podil district and across at the islands and beaches of the Dnipro River towards Left Bank Kyiv.
The bridge is set for completion by the end of spring 2019, with the traditional Kyiv Days festivities on the last weekend of May a likely date for the official opening.
