Carrying you up or down the Volodymyrska Hill in a matter of minutes, Kiev Funicular links two of the city's historical neighborhoods. Hop aboard the turn-of-the-century funicular, opened in 1905, and ride between the upper old town and the Podil district by the Dnieper River. Try to grab a seat near the front or back of the car to get the best vantage point. The view from the top sweeps over the river and waterfront below.
