Kiev ~ View Toward the Left Bank

•  HDR image, 6 image Panoramic Photo

This photo was taken from the top of a hill at the edge of the Kiev Botanic Gardens. The older, historic, downtown, part of Kiev is the Right Bank. The buildings in the background here are part of the Left Bank of the city. The Left Bank remained relatively undeveloped until the 1960's, when the first Metro (subway) Line opened to move passengers across the Dneiper. The part of the city seen here is even newer, opened up to development with the second cross river Metro Line in the 1990's.
