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 the Podil neighborhood of the city.
History [ edit ]
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.
