At: Rusanivska Quay

Rusanivka is a microdistrict on the left bank of the Dnipro, which for its unique location and beauty is also called Kyiv Venice. The Rusanivka cave has been known since ancient times as the possession of the Kyiv monasteries. It gained the name from Sava Rusanovych, who in the 16th century owned the neighboring lands.


In 1961, the construction of an exemplary Soviet residential complex started in this area. It is one of the first in the world and the only district in the city that was built on an artificial island. Soils were minted up to 3-5 meters above flooded markings. From the left bank, the complex is separated with an artificial bypass channel of 2, 7 km.
