The Andriyivskyy Descent, 720 metres (2,360 ft) in length, is constructed of laid cobblestones and connects Old Kyiv (Upper city) with Podil (Lower city). It starts at the end of Volodymyrska Street and winds down steeply around the Zamkova Hora hill, ending near the Kontraktova Square.
The journey begins in a residential area of Kyiv – South Borshchagivka. This area was built during the existence of the Soviet Union.
There are many grocery stores and pharmacies here. There are so many pharmacies that in Italy I could not believe my eyes: I couldn’t find a single pharmacy. Here you are: over-the-counter antibiotics.
There are also many old panel houses and beautiful girls. Every third girl is a James Bond girl).
