Kiev Funicular, Kiev

4.1
#1 of 8 in Transportation in Ukraine
Carrying you up or down the Volodymyrska Hill in a matter of minutes, Kiev Funicular links two of the city's historical neighborhoods. Hop aboard the turn-of-the-century funicular, opened in 1905, and ride between the upper old town and the Podil district by the Dnieper River. Try to grab a seat near the front or back of the car to get the best vantage point. The view from the top sweeps over the river and waterfront below.

  • Great views on the way up, cheap and it was a breeze. Only waited about 5 minutes for the next one to come  more »
  • Once on the top, the view is very beautiful. The funicular tickets isnot expensive at all and the machine is clean and nice. You can also take a walking route and not the funicular, if you wish.  more »

  • Funicular is as old as my late grandma, nothing to observe there, better to walk up the hill on fresh air, and see the beauty, and not being held in a humid place with only one wish - to get out.
  • Very unique place. Must visit for all tourists
