You're reading: Axle weights and Andriyivskyy Uzviz

As a big fan of Kyiv I was pleased to see the much-discussed renovation of Andriyivskyy Uzviz, the winding street in the heart of the old city, more or less completed on the eve of Euro 2012 – which kicks off in Warsaw tonight.

With its antique buildings, galleries, stalls, museums (including a Bulgakov Museum) and numerous cafes and bars, the street has the potential to be a world-class tourist attraction. Steep, intriguing iron staircases running up the hills on either side lead to woods and grassy slopes with spectacular views of the city.

Like any treasure, the Uzviz needs looking after. So it will be interesting to see whether the city authorities are able do anything to prevent vehicles from parking on the pavements (for US readers: sidewalks) on each side of the street.
