Dnipropetrovsk Travel Guide: 87 reviews and 315 photos

This is the third biggest city in Ukraine with about 1,2 million people. I came here because I wanted to take some pictures of the tram for my dad and it also appealed to me that hardly anyone goes there. And thanks to fellow VTer pika_ua it was made much easier for me. I wouldn't have wanted to miss it.

The area was first permanently settled in the 9th century by a monastery on Monstir Island. During Catherine the Great, General Potemkin started building Yekaterinoslav.

    Some of my family had lived in Dnipropetrovsk for a while. It would be nice to visit and see for myself what it is like. Nice page :)

    Hardly any tourists? Sounds like my kind of place! After viewing your photos of the Dnepr River, I now understand why Dnipropetrovsk is such an important industrial city in the Ukraine. Cheers, Bill

    an interesting page, Sonja, time seems to have stood still since CCCP-times in some aspects, while others were changing rapidly...
