One of the thing I had to do in Kiev is swimming in Dneiper River. I found it cool to go to Hydropark to do so. Great Atmosphere on the river bank.

When you have enough of big city you can go to Hydropark (metro line 1) and have some relax. A lot of green places, trrees, paths in forest. Great place to forgot about big city life.

I love coming here to soak up the sun. I'm not the only one, as the beaches get quite crowded in summer. I've never done it myself, but you can lift weights and do some gymnastics at the outdoor gym. In another area, you can go on a few kiddie rides. Snack shacks and mini bars are everywhere :)

Awful place, a lot of garbage on the beaches, a lot of cheap eateries full of drunk people who can not afford something better then beer or vodka, or vodka with beer. It is not that place you should go to have a rest at.

I saw people walking on bridge and followed them from the top of the hill. And surprised to see the beach in the middle of the city. It was beautiful place to enjoy.

Lots of drunk people and low-level restourants, that are not really good places to rest, loud music. But also amazing nature and a nice quiet meteostation, where you can book a place to make BBQ. So, everything is gonna be good if you go far from crowd.

Love to walk in this parkland area. The secret is to move away from the main shopping/built up area near the metro. Walk north or south and find yourself a nice quiet area to have a picnic with friends, go swimming for free or go fishing for the day.

A great place during the week for amusement rides, and weekends for music and dancing, all shared with lots of locals...

I thought this park was OK. It was a little pricey here, but there were a lot of places to walk around. And a nice beach. Even though you can't swim in the dirty water here.

First visited here in Nov 2013. I took the red line via Kiev's metro and exited at Гидропарк station. When I arrived, I was surprised; there are practically NO ONE, NO TOURISTS here at all! I only saw about 5-6 people all together in the park...after I felt quite lonely, I arrived at the coast of the Днепро river...it was... More
