Small stories of the big city
Every big city keeps many small stories and secrets, which are usually hidden from external eyes almost behind every facade of the building. You can find and solve them by looking into the central part of the city, where life has been seething over centuries. We offer you a walk along the oldest highway of Dnipro - Dmytro Yavornytsky Avenue. Here you will feel the breath of history very close: luxurious estates and modest houses, profitable buildings and hotels, stories of successful traders and entrepreneurs. In particular, we will get acquainted with a very extraordinary person - the "culprit" of the avenue title. Well-known historian, philologist, ethnographer, researcher of the Zaporozhian Cossacks... Dmytro Yavornytsky is the one who inspired Repin to write the painting "Cossacks write a letter to the Turkish sultan" and the one who surprised the Russian Emperor Nicholas II with such a fascinating excursion in Ukrainian that nobody even dared to sharpen attention on the language issue.
Yavornytsky Avenue has amassed a collection of inspiring stories inside each building. Let's go for a walk along the main street of Dnipro and get to know the city in a new way!
