The Kiev River Port (Ukrainian: Київський річковий порт; translit. Kyivskyi richkovyi port) is the main river port of Kiev, located on the right bank of the Dnieper River in Podil, historic and administrative raion of the city.

History

Since ancient times the Podil neighborhood was an important trade center, especially by water routes.

Around the 19th century, steamboats started to navigate along the Dnieper, and a row of quays were built along the Right Bank of the river.

Passenger terminal of the port

In 1953–1961 a new passenger terminal was built on the Poshtova Square by the architects V. Gopkalo, V. Ladny, and others. The building has a mast-like tower which resembles a steamboat tower.
