In the photo you can see how Kiev looked and what it was like more than a hundred years ago. The road is paved with stone blocks, empty squares, horse-drawn carriages mixed with trams and unfinished facades of buildings in the place of Kievans who are now familiar with Podol and Khreshchatyk. On the images you can see the buildings that have survived to this day.
The network published photos of pre-revolutionary Kiev. Photos are considered rare among the remaining.
