Open - Air Skating Rinks In Kyiv
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Lots of Kyevans associate winter season with the opportunity to go skating outdoors, as an alternative to conventional skating rinks at entertainment centres. In sober fact, some open-air rinks open within the city urban area, so there is no need to cover long distances to have fun!

First of all it is related to Ice Stadium on Academika Glushkova St. It is here the training camp for skaters, where it is possible to accelerate and almost always find a place to ride. A significant drawback of the Ice arena is its dependence on the weather, because natural ice is kept only at subzero temperatures. Skating session at the rink lasts 2 hours, and if you do not leave the ice, then you can go longer. This is the only place in Kiyv, where you can hire not only figure skating and hockey, but also racing skates. In addition, the stadium has no fixed sessions – the skating period is counted from the moment you set foot on the ice.

The rink on the Sofiivska Square provides an opportunity to go skating in the historic centre, near the walls of the St. Sophia Cathedral and the monument to Bogdan Khmelnitsky, and with the skate of your own it is completely free. Rental costs 25 hryvnas for 45 minutes. The major problem is a great number of those willing to go skating. Therefore, in order to have a chance to enjoy skating allurements, you need to come early and sign up for the next session.

People's Friendship Arch in the heart of the city also hosts a seasonal rink. Especially it is quite attractive during New Year and Christmas celebrations, with numerous fairs and exhibitions around. In addition, in December the place around the rink is much visited by those coming to Father Frost (Santa Claus), the Ukrainian residence of whom is arranged nearby Friendship Arch and European Square in Kyiv. 80 wooden housings around the rink welcome guests to try dishes of different European cuisines alongside fancies of national cooking traditions. Hot drinks, both light and strong, are served widely as well. Anyway, Friendship’s Arch is a great spot to have exciting leisure in wintery months in Kyiv, if you wish to mix skating with further entertainments.

On the left bank of Dnieper River one can go skating to Darynok. This is a rink on the territory of one of the biggest shopping centers of the city, under the open sky, of course.
