Few people know that the first TV and radio tower in Kyiv was located in the center of Khreshchatyk Street. For over 20 years, it could be seen from different parts of the capital.

Old photos were published in the community "Group 1900-1999. Kyiv" community on Facebook. Starting in the 1990s, Ukrainian television moved from the city center to Dorohozhychi.

"It was built in 1949-51, the tower was demolished in 1973. The TV and radio building is located at 26 Khreshchatyk Street, and the radio tower behind it, on M. Pidvalna (B. Grinchenko) Street, is 180-190 meters high," the statement reads.

The photos posted online show not only the construction of the tower and how it looked from different locations in the capital, but also the work of Kyiv television crews.

We would like to remind you that the Ukraine Palace is the largest concert and artistic institution in Kyiv and our country today. However, it was built in secret, and in order to obtain the appropriate permit, they submitted documents that it was supposed to be a cinema.

Not far from Kyiv, there is a palace that was built in the first half of the nineteenth century. The area where it is located is shrouded in mystery, and its first owner went crazy for unknown reasons.

As OBOZ.UA previously reported, in the 1960s, the embankment near Poshtova Square and the Dnipro Cliffs in Kyiv looked a little different. And the beaches on Trukhaniv Island were much larger.
