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

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.
