If you take a car over the impressive length of the Dnieper dam, be sure to keep your tongue BEHIND your teeth or you could bite off bits! An impressive bit of engineering, if not well kept. Great views to the steel and aluminum works...More

This early 20 century dam was one of the great civil engineering projects of its time. Well worth viewing from afar. Glad I have seen it.

This is a massive construction, impressive to see and drive across. But don't make a special point to spend a lot of time here. Once you have seen it, that's it.

Not a stand out attraction but worth seeing. It is very much in the old communist style and can be viewed from several different angles. Would not recommend making this a special excursion on a visit to this city.

Brother was proud to show us Dnieper Hydroelectric Station. Husband was proud that it has been built as a copy of Aswan Station in Egypt. Actually very impressive construction full of power.

If you drive from Dnepropetrovsk to Zaporizhzhya you will pass Dneper Power Plant. Interesting object, specially the log where ships are transferred from one water level to an other. Also the view from the dam is quiet nice.

This Hydro-Electric dam is a truly remarkable example of early 20th century engineering. It required an enormous effort in terms of resources and labour. The dam is over 800 metres long and 61 metres high. The dam elevates the river water up to 37 metres,...More
