How to take a boat ride in Holosiivskyi park in Kiev
About 140 hectares of greenery, ponds, playgrounds and attractions. One isn`t able to examine all this at a time. Boating is one of the popular variants of walk in this area. You seem to be somewhere in the country, away from the noise of cars and crowds in the subway. This is a good way to bring quickly the good mood back or make a romantic walk with your soul mate.

One of the best boat stations of the capital is located in Holosiivskyi Park. Go down along the cascade of ponds to the fourth one. There you can choose the boat you like and go for a walk.

How to do?

1. Get out of the subway on the station "Holosiivska".
2. You will immediately see the entrance to the park. When you get tired of walking along the alleys, go to the fourth pond and rent a boat.
3. Rest, view beautiful lanscapes, take photos of them, master the boat.
4. After a walk, you can go to the nearest cafe or have fun at the attractions nearby.

How much?

Rent a boat – 60 UAH per hour.

Tips and hints

Swans and ducks swim around the pond. They can be fed with slices of vegetables.
Bring a camera with you. Perhaps you will be able to take pictures of not only birds and beautiful landscapes, but also badgers, otters or ermines, who also live here.
