About the place
The building of the City Palace of Children and Youth Creativity, built directly on a steep cliff above the Dnipro. The modern building was built in the mid 80-ies of the 20th century and has an observatory with a planetarium.
Next to the City Palace is one of the most amazing viewing platforms of the city of Zaporizhzhia, from which an unforgettable view opens up.
Of course, in the first place, the business card Zaporizhzhia - DniproHES draws attention to itself, the construction of which is striking in its scale and beauty. The Dnipro hydroelectric station began to be built on March 15, 1927. It was then that on the picturesque bank of the Dnipro, on the rock of Love, a red flag was installed with the inscription "Dniprobud started." The construction of this impressive engineering complex was completed in just 5 years. The modern view of the DniproHES, every night is illuminated by the overflow of LED lights, a magnificent building that was divided by the mighty Dnipro and at night will not leave indifferent even a picky traveler.
On the other hand, another picturesque view opens up on the island of Khortytsia with the historical and cultural complex Zaporizhzhia Sich - this is a different era. Zaporizhzhia Sich is a complex that immerses us in the unique atmosphere of life and life of the times of the Cossacks. On the grated complex rise observation and watch towers and the Cossack church. In general, the whole complex can be seen from this viewing platform at a glance and make unforgettable pictures for memory.
One of the Preobrazhenskyi Bridge, built in the last century during 1949-1952, is also perfectly visible from here. The author of the project was engineer Boris Preobrazhenskyi. The construction is four arched and two-tier connecting the banks of the New Dnipro riverbed, its length is 560 meters, height - 54 meters. The location is one of the most beloved among city photographers.
