Kyiv on very old engravings of 1861 year

Picture proposes to revise a series of Polish engravings with images of Kyiv in 1861.

At that time there was already a photograph, and therefore the meaning of such engravings began to decrease. Moreover, some drawings look like photographs refined by the artists.

On the photos you can see Vydubychi Monastery, the Golden Gate, part of the Khreshchatyk street, Podil and many others beautiful places of Ukraine Capital.

In the future we will add more old photos of Ukrainian cities.
