I visited this monument in the late 1980s/early 90s. The locals, even then, were talking about the possibility of civil war. At the time I thought that their concerns were exaggerated, but look what soon after happened to the Soviet Union. Given this arch supposedly...More

I can't restrain myself from sharing my upset fro this monument of Soviet concepts to present military and political presence in a territory within the block as a friendship! Megalomaniac, zero art value, unfortunately spoiling one of the picturesque viewpoints of Kiev.

The arch is cool, but the main reason to go here is that it is has one of the best views of the Dnipro river. The park surrounding the arch is very nice as well and you can do some hiking. It’s centrally located right...More

The friendship arch is just an arch nothing special,but near the arch is the zipline that worth the ride for 250 krivna per person,and if you have an action camera its a must at zipline.

You can easily access Mariinskiy Park through some steps, and along the Valeriy Lobanovskyi Stadium. It's only a small detour so if you are in the area, it's worth the visit.

The friendship arch is just an arch and little more than a few monuments. Great views of parts of Kiev

It's a big arch but I wouldn't go out of the way to visit it. There is however a great view over the north east side of Kiev from the viewing platform close by. If you are feeling brave there is even a zipwire located...More

Considering there is no love lost between Ukrainians and Russians I have no idea why this is still standing here. It was put here in 1982 and there are plans to pull it down. It lights up at night and lots of people come here...More

Nice park overlooking the Podil neighborhood and river below. Described to us by locals as a park for friendship between Ukraine and Russia. Interesting since one does not gladly recognize the other. be careful as the polished granite surface below the arch by the statues...More
