Prospect Peremohy (Ukrainian: Проспект Перемоги) is the second longest public roadway in Kiev, Ukraine. The roadway was created in the second half of the 20th century (1964) as part of the urbanized area of the Brest-Lytovske highway and was known as Brest-Lytovskyi prospect. At the beginning of the Soviet perestroika period, in 1985 it was renamed to current name.

History[edit]

Originally being terminated at the Povitroflotskyi overpass, in 1985, when it was renamed, the prospect was extended all the way to the Peremohy Square which until 1985 was part of boulevard Tarasa Shevchenka.

Through Peremohy Square and boulevard Tarasa Shevchenka, the roadway reaches Khreshchatyk at Bessarabska Square.

Along the streets are located various important institutions of government, education and culture.

It is part of the former business route (currently rerouted along the Kiev Great Ring Road). Along the prospect are located several overpasses and bridges (Povitroflotskyi, Shuliavskyi, over the Railway crossing, Kovelskyi, over the Great Ring road, and Havanskyi bridge). There are also six metro stations of the Sviatoshynsko–Brovarska line as well as three railway stations.
