Lybid is a beautiful river that has become a hostage of a large metropolis. According to legend, the legendary founder of Kyiv, the sister of Kyi, Shchek and Khoriv, lived on its banks. In ancient times, there were picturesque meadows, water mills and ponds... Today, the living river is enclosed in a concrete ditch, but it is still interesting in its own way. The Lybid flows in the very center of the capital, but there are almost no people here. An interesting area has formed on the banks of the river, a small world of its own, woven together from the industrial zone, wildlife, and old abandoned buildings.
