The place that is now called Landscape Alley was built in early 1980s. In 2009 activists began to improve this place, and the sculptor Constantin Skretutsky started decorating Landscape Alley with fairy-tale characters: cats-centipedes, elephants-fountains, giant sparrows settled on the street. The collection is constantly updated with new, interesting and original sculptures.

While walking on alley, you can discover such many attractions.

 

Picnic area near the National History Museum of Ukraine

At the beginning of Landscape Alley, near the Desyatinnaya Church and the National history Museum of Ukraine, there is a wonderful place. This is a wide park area where you can play frisbee or badminton, enjoy nature and relax on the grass, have a picnic, play games and just meet with friends. Near the museum you can often hear play on ethnic drums or guitar. 

Outside the museum on the observation deck lies the famous stone, on which is written in old Russian: "From here Russian land started...". This stone was erected in memory of Kyiv foundation in the end of XX century. Also, on meadow in front of the museum you can find the shrine of Perun (slavonic pagan God).

At the entrance to the National History Museum of Ukraine you will be able to see six ancient prairie statues - stone sculptures: three from the Scythian epoch (VI century BC) and three — Polovtsian (XII-XIII centuries). They say that it is better not to show them excessive interest, because by legends, they are sacred and untouchable. Once they stood in steppes of Eastern and Southern Ukraine.

This place is called the mountain of the Kyi, on where Desyatinnaya Church was built during the reign of Yaroslav the Wise. According to legends, prince Vladimir the Red Sun with his wife, the Byzantine Princess Anna, were burried.

Graffiti on a beer theme

Finishing your walk on alley, you will come to the Lviv Square, on the end of the house #38 on Velyka Zhytomyrska street there are extraordinarily fascinating graffiti. Huge 3D picture on the wall depicts the life inside of an imaginary house.

The painting is conventionally divided into old ages with a beer tavern of XIX century on the ground floor, and then up to the present. There are several stories on the second floor: a robber who tries to get into the apartment and the man who seeks his wife's lover. And at the top there are young people of today on the balcony. From past to present. There's a feeling of incompleteness, as in the upper right corner you will see the author of this work is hanging from the roof of the house, he finished the picture.

Good place to take a walk in the output. There are benches to sit and areas for children. All very creative, with soul, with warmth. You will be interested in unique sculptures and your kids will love the mosaic figures of the Little Prince, and characters from Alice. If you're hungry, you can drink coffee, eat ice cream, and cafes. There are some disadvantages: a little dirty, especially in the lower part of the promenade.

Хорошее место для прогулки в выходной. Есть лавочки, чтобы посидеть и площадки для детей. Все очень креативно, с душой, с теплотой. Вам будут интересны авторские скульптуры, а вашим деткам непременно понравятся мозаичные фигурки Маленького принца и персонажей из Алисы. Если проголодались, можно выпить кофе, съесть мороженое, работают кафе. Есть и минус: немного грязновато, особенно в нижней части аллеи.

I liked the sculpture. But. Everything is not a lot poszarpane. It is time for the authorities to restore some of the sculptures.
And it's all cool. And for kids and adults

Очень понравились скульптуры. Но. Уже все не много пошарпаное. Пора бы властям отреставрировать некоторые скульптуры.
А вообще здорово. И для малышей и для взрослых

If modern art you don't like the fact you are not here. Here you can find Manneken Pis and stuff like that. A lot of what's done in the style of "Alyssa in Wonderland". Nice in principle.

Если современное искусство вам не нравится то вам не сюда. Здесь можно найти писающих мальчиков и прочее в этом роде. Много что сделано в стиле "Алисса в стране чудес". Красиво в принципе.
