Hrushevsky Street and European Square today

The future Hrushevsky Street in the capital emerged along the ancient Ivanivskyi Way, known since the times of Rus. Thanks to a painting from 1860, we can see how it was in those days, as well as make out the Kyiv hills.

The old painting was published in the community "Thirst: interesting things to do in Kyiv" on Facebook. This location has changed beyond recognition.

"Khreshchaty Yar (yes, Hrushevsky Street would be here), 1860," the post reads.

The picture shows not only the ravine itself, but also the future European Square, as well as St. Alexander's Cathedral and the domes of St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery.

Hrushevsky Street originated along the ancient Ivanivsky Way, known since the times of Rus. Since ancient times it existed as a road connecting Podil with Pechersk[1]. The oldest part of the street, which began to be built up in the mid-eighteenth century, is the section between Kriposnyi Lane and Arsenalna Square.

Darnitsa in Kyiv was first mentioned in documents in 1509. At the end of the 19th century, a railway station was built here, and the area itself turned into a famous vacation spot for Kyiv residents and a summer cottage.

In 1870, the Central Railway Station was opened in Kyiv. Its first building was constructed of yellow brick in the Old English Gothic style.

As OBOZ.UA 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.
