The park “Kiev in miniature”


The park “Kiev in miniature”

The park “Kiev in miniature” - is the park of miniatures that is situated on the territory of Hidropark. The park occupies territory of 1.8 hectare and shows the models of Kiev architectural objects, made in scale 1:33. The nearest metro station is Hidropark. Today there are 48 mini-models. The population of “mini-Kiev” is always growing and today it consists of 700 inhabitants. The models of the buildings require constant care; because of the open air exhibition they are often restored. The park was opened on June 23, 2006. The idea of creating such a unique place appeared in 2000. It took 4 years to make that idea come true. In the park you can see Maidan Nezalejnosti and Khreschatik, Kievo-Pecherska Lavra, St. Michaels’ Monastery, The Golden Gates, St. Sophia Cathedral, the monument Rodina Mat, the railway station, the airport, and the Dnieper is crossed by 4 main bridges: Moskovskiy, Pedestrian, Metro and Ujnuy. In the parks and squares of mini-Kiev you can see the monuments of the most famous Ukrainian personalities in culture, politics and art. In the international airport “Borispol” you can see 5 planes that came from 5 different countries.
