Pictures of Nature in Kiev
Parks, Waterways, and Wild Areas
Kiev is remarkable among capitals of the world for its large amount of green territories and waterways in the middle of the city. Not only are the numerous islands of the Dnipro River mostly undeveloped and forested, but there are large parks along the bank of the Dnipro, and the city is surrounded by forests. In late April the city starts to bloom, and many Kievites take pilgrimages to the botanical garden to see the lilacs. May and June are very pleasant months in Kiev (unless you suffer from hay fever).
