If I were a Director, I would create a film about Kiev. Let it be a cliche name “I love you”, used in movies about Paris and New York. But this will prove the attitude of many inhabitants and visitors. And everyone have they own reasons for loving Ukrainian capital. If you have such, please be so kind to share them here. Why do you love Kiev?
I will answer first. I love it for the childish spirit after the walk in the area of Pejzazhnaya Alley (literary Landscape alley).
I was working not far from this hidden corner of colorful benches and swings, made of tiles. And every time after a hard day I was passing by the alley. And this place always helped to forget the problems and to feel like Alice in Wonderland. By the way, recently a playground for children appeared, which gathered the main characters from the Lewis Carroll’s book in one place. Only Alice is missing. Maybe it should be you, or me?
The idea to decorate an alley in such a brilliant way belongs to Ukrainian sculptor Konstantin Skretytskyj. Due to support of locals and sponsors the childish world turned alive. I love to hide in rabbit-looking bench in the rain and enjoy the view to hilly surroundings while drops whispering its fairy tales.
