Parkovy Pedestrian Bridge is one of the symbols of the city of Kyiv, and a favourite photo spot. Its distinctive silhouette is especially well seen from the observatory site near Volodymyr the Great monument. This is a light construction 400 metres in length that connects Kyiv city centre at the Right Bank with the recreational area and beaches of Trukhaniv Island. It was projected Ukrproektstalkonstruktsia Project Institute in cooperation with the world famous Paton Institute, and opened in 1957. By design, this is the welded bridge built using the automatic welding. Its length is 426.4 m, the width of the pedestrian zone is 7m. The bridge consists of the three central spans of hanging structure and two coastal areas of beam construction.Today, this is the only bridge constructed specifically for the pedestrian traffic over the Dnipro river; no vehicles allowed on it. Various extreme sports are practiced at the bridge, including the Bungee jumping.

Cross the Dniepr without getting wet. The "Pedestrian Bridge" will take you from St. Vladimir's Hill over to Trukhaniv Island. Beaches (nude and traditional), plenty of forest, bike-riding, exploring. A great place for a picnic. And if the traditional modes of transport don't grab you, there's a zip-line nearby that will zing you across the River, and some bungee outfit... More

The view is great from the bridge. The bridge itself is in poor condition, and can be dangerous for childeren at the side (gaps between the railing). It's worth to give it a visit when you are nearby.

This bridge connects right-bank Kyiv with Trukhaniv Island, which has a few sand beaches, cafes and woodlands for walking or cycling. However, the only reason anyone needs to know about this is the fact that a scary zip-line runs along the bridge and over the Dnipro River.

Even its kinda heart of the city and kinda main road under it it feels so calm to pass over it every time.. You can enjoy few cafes after walking the bridge.. And sometimes you can find the guys who are professional in bungee jumping and its structure.. You should try that as well only for 200grivna. !!!

In 2002 we were able to walk across the frozen River Dnipro underneath this bridge, which was an amazing experience and adrenalin rush. Walking across the bridge normally is pretty average. However there are some great views down the river and it is worth 15 minutes of your time.
