Prior to visiting Kiev in April 2012, I didn't realise how many beaches the city has! Given that the city lies a long way from the sea, I didn't expect to find any beaches at all. However, there are many long sandy beaches along the Dnepr river. We caught the Metro to Hidropark (just 3 stops from Independence Square and Khreshchatyk Street) to see the beaches close up. This short video was shot from a bridge overlooking a beach that is located less than 5 minutes walk from Hidropark Metro station. Unfortunately, it began to rain no sooner had we got off the Metro. Despite the wet weather (and not particularly warm temperatures) we did witness a couple of elderly gentlemen wading into the river for a bracing swim!
