The View

Scenic Outlook in Marinski Park Kiev. Sadly, the spot were these women were standing is no longer there.  Not sure what happened to this spot though...

Not sure? Well I can tell you what happend. It was ruined because Yanukovich wanted a road(and it seems underground one) from Rada to helipad(which is now right across that road below) and the outlook somehow became a hazard, so they demolished it. In a few words: it was destroyed by Yanukovich.

View from the Botanic Gardens

One of the views Kiev is best known for.  From the New Botanic Gardens to Vydubichi Monastery to the Dnepr to the Right Bank.
