Kyiv Funicular

Kyiv, Ukraine
4.8 / 26
The unique funicular of the beginning of the XX century, performing the functions of public transport, one of the first in the Russian Empire. On it you can climb from Podil to the Upper Town. Previously, on the site of the funicular there was a staircase of 500 steps. Climbing it could be equated to a real physical training. The system can transport up to 4000 thousand people per hour, travel time - no more than 2-3 minutes.
