“Entertained by the view and musician.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2014

We (a couple) were riding red line from the city center towards "Chernihivs'ka" metro station at the evening in order to catch a bus to Chernihiv. When our train passed this bridge, we were able to see quite good view to the Dnieper River and both right and left banks. On one of them, we saw Mother Motherland monument right from the window in front of us. However, it happened by chance and we doubt that someone would go to this bridge just for the view because it is a bit away from the center.

Meantime, passengers were entertained by a young musician singing a song by band "Bravo." His bag for donations was full of money given by those, who believe that he is a good musician, or cute, or even both.

In general, there are many other good viewpoints like Museum of the Great Patriotic War and Kiev Pechersk Lavra, where you can peacefully enjoy the view without being disturbed by loud moving objects. If not musician, we would give 3/5 to this place.

“Good point for sightseeing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

In fact, you get on the bridge (except for cars, but you cannot stop on the bridge) by reaching "Dnipro" subway station (red line). It is quite good place whrere you can look on Dnipro and Podol, but not the best. Two statues on colums of platform looks good.
Anyway, the better view on Kyiv will be form subway train while crossing from Dnipro to Hydropark station.
