Air balloon flight over Kiev

Kiev is the capital and largest city of Ukraine standing on the Dnieper River. Because of its historical importance as the center of Kievan Rus’, the city is still referred to as the “Mother of Russian cities.” The length of the city from north to south is 50 km, from west to east – 56 km.

Forests, parks and gardens make up more than half the area of Kiev. Within the city there are two botanical gardens. Kiev is rightly called one of the greenest cities in the world.
