Children Landscape Park – One of the Must See Places in Kyiv

Peizazhna Alley is a recreation area in Kyiv created on the site of the old defense walls of the Upper Town. In 2009, Children Landscape Park was opened here – one of the most impressive and unusual places in the city. It is a great place for both kids and adults where you can take a lot of nice pictures.

The alley starts from the observation deck near the National Museum of History of Ukraine. It was laid in the early 1980s to allow tourists enjoy the views of Podil and the Dnieper from the height of the historic Upper Town. Peizazhna Alley in Kyiv on Google Maps. Photos by: Alex Cheban.

This is what happens to the inhabitants of the river just after a few decades, if the river is not disturbed by people, and perhaps due to the excessive radiation.

The Earth without man would have been quite a busy place, and the Chernobyl zone as a whole, and in particular the Pripyat River, is an interesting object for such studies.
