Kyiv Winter Waltz
8 February, 2016

With winter in full swing, Kyiv’s residents find different ways to keep busy. From keeping warm weightlifting in an open air gym made from scrap metal and car parts, to more solitary activities such as fishing in the frozen river Dnipro, Kyiv takes full advantage of what’s on offer. Although Hidropark first opened in 1968 as a summer entertainment complex, many still flock to the island to escape the winter blues.

‘Kyiv Winter Waltz’ was filmed in Kyiv on 30th January 2015 by Hromadske’s Rachel Judah and Paul Gogo.
