This bridge across Volodymyrskyi Descent is the youngest Kyiv bridge; its length is 216 metres, and it connects Khreshchatyi Park with St. Volodymyr Hill. It was opened on the Kyiv’s Day in May 2019 by Kyiv’s current mayor, Vitali Klitschko. So it’s often dubbed as a Klitschko’s Bridge. 90% of the materials used during construction have domestic origin. In particular, the metal was produced at the famous Mariupol plant Azovstal.
The bridge is equipped with sightseeing platforms with glass inserts in its floor, from which a breath-taking panorama of the Dnieper and the Left Bank opens up. It is one of the best places in the capital for meeting sunrises. On October 10, 2022, the bridge was targeted by a rocket launched by the Russian aggressor. Kyivites consider it symbolic that the bridge in Kyiv, unlike the Kerch Bridge, has survived the hit with only little damage.
