Pinsteps. The "Teatralna" metro station in Kyiv
Places to visit in Kyiv. Languages: en

The "Teatralna" metro station in Kyiv is on the Red Line (Sviatoshynsko-Brovarska Line) of the Kyiv Metro system. It was opened on December 6, 1960, as part of the first stage of the Kyiv Metro's construction, which included five initial stations.

The name "Teatralna" (Theater) was chosen because of the station's proximity to several important cultural institutions, such as the National Opera of Ukraine, the Ivan Franko National Academic Drama Theater, and the Lesya Ukrainka National Academic Theater of Russian Drama. The station's design, created by architects A.V. Dobrovolsky and I.L. Maslenkov, reflects its cultural context, with elegant architectural elements and decorations, including columns, friezes, and bas-reliefs.

Over the years, the "Teatralna" station has undergone several renovations to maintain its appearance and functionality. It remains an important transportation hub in Kyiv, serving residents and visitors who attend performances at the nearby theatres and explore the surrounding area.

For the most up-to-date information about the metro station, its facilities, and its schedule, I recommend checking the official Kyiv Metro website or other local resources.

Winter walk in Kyiv of Dec 15, 2018

Winter in the Shevchenkivskyi district of Kyiv is a beautiful sight. When the trees are covered in snow, the streets look incredibly cosy and charming. Many cafes and restaurants in the area are decorated in winter themes with garlands and Christmas decorations, creating a festive and relaxed atmosphere.

The Shevchenkivskyi district in Kyiv is named after the great Ukrainian poet, writer, translator, and public figure Taras Shevchenko. Taras Shevchenko was born in 1814 in the village of Moryntsi near Kyiv.

The Shevchenkivskyi district in Kyiv was formed due to an administrative and territorial reform of the city in 1939. When it was created, the district's territory was part of other historic districts in the town that had changed over time. For example, the Bessarabka district was founded in the 1830s, and the Lukyanivka district was founded in the 1860s.

Before the formation of the Shevchenkivskyi district, the territory of Kyiv that now comprises the district had various names, depending on the area. For example, the part of the district near the Universitat metro station was called Kudryavets. In contrast, the part where the Pechersk Residential Complex is located is known as the Botanical Garden.
