This is a 1982 reconstruction of the main gait to the medieval Kiev. It is built in the same place as the original one, than was errected in 1037 during the rule of Yaroslav the Wise, but was almost completely destroyed in 124o during a mongol invasion.
The gate was a copy of Constantinopel's (today Instanbul) Golden Gate (hance the name). With it's ramparts the gate looks really impressive. I wonder how it looked with the rest of the defensive wall.

Address: vul Volodymyrska
Directions: 500 m west from central square (maydan Nezalezhnosti)
