|A voyage along the Dnieper
||The view of Lavra and the Motherland - Mother||On the captain`s bridge|
here are not many cities in the world with such a vast and accessible expanse of water as the Dnieper in the Kiev city centre. There is no better way to cool off than to spend some time on the river on steaming-hot summer days. You will definitely enjoy having your time on board of our boat while watching breathtaking banks of the Dnieper River with the golden domes, parks and modern parts of our city.
The Dnieper river boats trip is one of the favorite types of entertainment of Kyiv residents and tourists visiting the capital of Ukraine. And it would be difficult to find a river with a more complicated and bloodstained history than the 1,420-mile Dnieper, Europe's third-longest river (after the Volga and the Danube). By the ninth century Kiev was a major trading center on the Dnieper. A hundred years later Kiev with its population of 50,000 people was one of the largest cities in Europe. Now the population of Kyiv is nearly 3 million. Kiev was the capital of the powerful Kievan Rus State which was stretched from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea. Historians say the Kievan Rus State is the cradle of Slavic civilization.
During your boat trip you will have your opportunity of enjoying again the stunning sights of Kiev such as Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, Arch of Friendship, River Port Terminal, Magdeburg Rights Column, Podol (Lower Town), Mariinsky Park, Metro Bridge, Darnitskiy Bridge, Moscow Bridge, Trukhanov island and Hydropark. Mostly though you will be amazed with the many gold-domed churches you pass, especially the Kiev Pechersk Lavra, a vast complex of churches in the monastery where mummified monks are entombed in caves. And of course you will view the magnificent skyline of the statue of Soviet Motherland as well as the awe-inspiring golden cupolas of the Orthodox churches in Podol while coming into the harbor.
A boat trip along the Dnieper River is a journey of discovery: explore ancient historical sights, gaze upon grand monuments and encounter a vibrant culture rich in tradition. See how differing societies from the Vikings to the Tatars and the Cossacks have influenced the architecture and people living in the capital city of Ukraine. Enjoy your time of scenic cruising, taking in the Dnieper’s landscape of rolling hills with ancient groves.
