Not really a traditional place for walks for tourists, but it is quite popular among the locals – Obolon embankment. It is located in the remote residential area Obolon. A walk along one of the bays of the Dnipro River on the weekend always attracts many residents of the district.
The walking part of the promenade starts from the as of yet unfinished new church and stretches along the coastline for several kilometers. This place is away from the city noise, on cloudy or chilly days it’s a good place for a romantic walk with the fog shrouding the river.
Below the walking zone you will find sandy beaches. There you can have a small picnic near the water. But in the summer it will be difficult to do. On hot days there is an atmosphere opposite the winter one. At this time of year, the beaches are packed with people who sunbathe and swim in the pond. Residents of nearby houses walk their dogs, play with the kids and ride bikes.
Throughout the embankment there are a few good restaurants (e.g. “Melange”), where you can have a tasty snack or a glass of wine overlooking the Dnipro River, before continuing your walk.
