Kyiv is the well-known capital of Ukraine. Being the most populated megacity in the country, it is also the largest in terms of area. It is located on the picturesque banks of the Dnieper River, which, thanks to the regulating effect, forms a considerable number of water bodies within the city.
National parks and rich woodlands surround Kyiv from its northern, north-western, and eastern sides. The most famous and significant sights of the capital are the Hydropark and the Venetian island. They are located in the middle of the Dnieper River between the picturesque Pecherskyi and Dniprovskyi Districts.
Kyiv is administratively subdivided into 10 districts. The largest by area is Holosiivskyi, while in terms of population — Desnianskyi.
The Dnieper River divides the city into two unequal parts. Thus, the largest number of citizens live on the right bank.
The most important facilities — administrative, infrastructure, and industrial — are also located there.
The districts of the left and right banks are connected by 5 major traffic arteries and 2 railway bridges.
