Navodnytskyi park

The tree of happiness is a forged sculpture located near monument of the founders of Kyiv. Branches of the tree are decorated with colored ribbons. People believe that they bring luck and happiness. This monument perfectly well completes Dnieper Quay park’s composition.

  • There is a tradition of newlyweds to tie a ribbon on the tree of happiness and throw a wedding bouquet on a monument of the founders of Kyiv at the wedding day. There is also a belief for your future kids to be healthy if you rub an apple on the forged tree.

  • Kyiv citizens make up myths about this sculpture. They say if a couple hangs a lock on tree, they will never divorce.
