Livoberezhnyi Masyv (Ukrainian: Лівобережний масив) or commonly known as Livoberezhna (Ukrainian: Лівобережна) is a residential neighborhood of the Ukrainian capital Kiev.[1] The neighborhood is administratively a part of the Dnipro Raion, and is located on the city's left bank (which it is named for).

The neighborhood is surrounded by the Dnipro River to its west, Darnytsia to its north and east, Berezniaky to its southeast, and Rusanivka to its south. It was created in the 1960s-1970s on the territory of the Mykilska Slobidka, a former settlement on the outskirts of Kiev.[2][3][4]

The Livoberezhnyi neighborhood is serviced by the Livoberezhna station of the Kiev Metro's Sviatoshynsko-Brovarska Line,[5] where a number of city busses and marshrutkas connect. In addition, the Kiev Urban Electric Train has a flag stop located in walking distance from the metro station.

Attractions[edit]

The International Exhibition Centre, Ukraine's largest expo building,[6] is located on the neighborhood's western portion. In addition, the 27-story "Turist" (Tourist) Hotel is located in the neighborhood in direct proximity to the metro station. The Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church's main patriarchal cathedral is also located in the neighborhood.
