You're reading: Andriyivsky Spusk gets a makeover
Popular
on social media

This is how one of Kyiv’s most visited landmarks Andriyivsky Spusk, or St. Andrew’s Descent, looks today.

Reconstruction touted for years finally began at the end of September. Surrounded by scandal and rumor, a restoration plan includes renovating facades, upgrading utility connections and laying new cobblestones.

City authorities in charge of the reconstruction assured homeowners that they would not be affected and that no high-rise buildings would muck up this historical sliver of Kyiv. But given the recent history of St. Sophia’s Cathedral, which saw more than one hotel and office center invade environs that are supposed to be protected heritage sites, St. Andrew’s residents and art dealers remain skeptical and fear defacement.
