I have long wanted to introduce you to the capital of Ukraine - Kiev. But there were no new photos. We recently met with my mother in Kiev and had a great time. Today a little introduce you to the beautiful and old city of Kiev. I live in Odessa, but I visit Kiev quite often. It is the largest city in Ukraine and one of the largest cities in Europe. Kiev attracts me with its open spaces and green parks. The city is located on the banks of the Dnieper river.
Archaeological excavations tell us that settlements on the territory of Kiev appeared 4500 years before our era. N photos you see a grandiose monument of history "Motherland". I have always been impressed by the size of this sculpture. This monument to see from different sides of Kiev. Monument "Motherland" was opened in honor of the memory of those killed in the war with Nazi invaders (1941-1945). The monument was erected in 1981. "Motherland" symbolizes the great power of the Slavic people
The photo shows the Central square of Kiev - Independence square. This is a very old square. I can not believe that there was once just a swampy area in the 10th century. All the big holidays and events are held on Independence square in Kiev
The Central and oldest street in Kiev is Khreshchatyk. You see her in the picture. Crosses the street to Independence square. In the distance you can see a rainbow bridge. It is a bridge of "Friendship of peoples"
There are a lot of beautiful and historical architectural structures on Khreshchatyk.
The baptism of Ancient Russia is closely connected with Kiev. The city has built magnificent temples and cathedrals, which are very many years old. They still decorate and complement the beauty of Kiev
In Kiev, 10 large administrative districts. Permanent residents of Kiev-is 3000000 people. But with visitors and students it is about 5000000 people
I always admire Kiev for its size and historical monuments. Spacious streets and very green parks, museums and research institutes of Ukraine are of great interest.
The history of Kiev is very diverse. Since 882 Kiev was the capital of Kievan Rus. The possession of Kiev Grand buffet provided stareyshinstvo Prince in Rus ' and after its collapse into separate principalities. In 1240 it was destroyed by Mongol-Tatars. Since 1362 is a part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Commonwealth. (Before that I wrote a lot about the history of Ukraine. Kiev is very closely connected with all historical events) from 1654 as part of the Russian Empire. Since 1934 — the capital of the Ukrainian SSR. During the great Patriotic war, Kiev was occupied from September 19, 1941 to November 6, 1943. For heroism manifested during the defense, Kiev was awarded the title of hero city (Decree of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of June 21, 1961; approved by the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR, may 8, 1965). Since 1991 Kiev is the capital of the independent state of Ukraine.
