Things to do in Dnipro

A city that grew from the foundations of a booming manufacturing industry, Dnipro was founded towards the end of the 18th century by Catherine the Great. Until WWII a large part of Dnipro’s population was Jewish and parts of its Jewish community remain. A community with evidences of its fluctuating prosperity reflected in its plush mansions and the longest promenade in Europe, Dnipro is often overlooked by visitors to Ukraine, but is well worth visiting.

There is also a gripping exhibition of propaganda posters, including those from the Holodomor famine in which up to 10 million people were killed in 1932 to 1933.

Transfiguration Cathedral

With its foundation laid by Empress Catherine the Great herself during the inauguration of the city in 1787, this 18th century Cathedral holds a high artistic and architectural value. The construction and design of the 18th century Transfiguration Cathedral reflects the culture and craftsmanship of the Russian classical school.

Although its foundation was laid in 1787, the construction of the cathedral did not begin until over forty years later in 1830. Rumoured to have had its decoration destroyed by Soviet troops of the time, the building survived WWII and has since undergone a full restoration and a mosaic of the Transfiguration of the Lord can be seen on the outside of the building.

Monastyrsky Island

Occupied for at least 2,000 years, Monastyrsky, the city’s own river island, was named after the Byzantine monastery founded there in the 9th century. This seems to be only a legend however, as there has never been archaeological evidence of the monastery. A truly mysterious part of the city, the island was uninhabited for years until an Orthodox church was built on its northern side.

Formerly a staging post for medieval merchants and early Christians, the island can be reached by cableway or a metal arch footbridge. The island has a beach, which stretches across it southern side, as well as a freshwater aquarium, a few bars as well as rental rowboats and kayaks.

 

The island is most popular among the honeymooners who come there to hang the lock on the forged bridge as a symbol of their strong love. If you want to consolidate your feelings too, you can buy a ticket to Dnipropetrovsk and get to the island on a troll.
