The Kiev funicular

In Kiev it is possible to find also a short funicular line which connect the area of the Saint Michael Cathedral (Михайлівський золотоверхий монастир, Mykhaylivs’kyi zolotoverkhyi monastyr) with the area of the metro station “Poshtova plosha, Поштова плоша”.

You can get there also by foot, but if you don’t want to walk or you just want to try something different then you can take the metro until “Poshtova plosha” and then you will see right in front of you the entrance of the funicular station.
