Earlier on the place of Kyiv funicular was a wooden staircase. Hike from Podil to the Upper Town was very hard.

Therefore, in the early 20th century, when the appropriate equipment appeared, city officials started to wonder how to improve transportation between Lower and Upper Town. Andrew's Descent was not suitable because of its steepness and narrowness, therefore, it was decided to make electric wire rope ascent in the place of the wooden stairs. It was built for 2 years and in 1905, Mikhailovsky funicular started to operate.

You can walk up and down the stairs, not on the funicular. The movement of the trailer is 3 minutes, and the stations are located from each other at a height of 76 meters.

In just a few hryvnia can save a lot of time and get the impression.

But the view from the upper station of the bomb.

Всего за несколько гривен можно сэкономить уйму времени и получить впечатление.

А вид с верхней остановки - бомба.

One of the most unforgettable "public transport" experiences in Kiev!
Efficient, fun and with stunning views from the top!
It cost the same as the standard single journey on any other public transport in Kiev. Love it!

Beautiful views of Kiev, the main entrance at rush hour. One of the typists there is a feature to feed the birds during the descent. A fascinating spectacle.

Красивый вид на Киев, главное попасть не в час пик. У одной из машинисток есть особенность кормить птиц при спуске. Завораживающее зрелище.

Great attraction that gets you to the uppertown (or downtown) in minutes, and for a mere 3 hryvnia (0.1 cents). Must try for tourists!

This being unforgettable, to recommend to visit Kiev. Its people, despite the difficulty of the language, make it impossible to try to help, it is advisable to get a translator that does not need the internet, and beware of those who offer to get you photos when they are disguised,hehehe!! For the rest fantastico!!

Esta siendo inolvidable, para recomendar visitar Kiev. Sus gentes, pese a la dificultad del idioma, hacen lo imposible para intentar ayudar, es aconsejable bajarte un traductor que no haga falta internet, y cuidado con los que ofrecen sacarte fotos cuando van disfrazados,jejeje!! Por lo demas fantastico!!
