Where to Make a Wish in Kyiv

Where to Make a Wish in Kyiv

Kyiv is a mysterious city full of magic. For example, of places where you can make a wish and hope they come true. Here are just a few of them.

1. Bridge of Lovers

Officially called a Park Bridge, it is well know among romantic couples. They believe that if you make a wish of forever love standing on it, and seal it with a kiss and with a lock (and kiss!), you’ll stay together forever and with a lot of happiness. There is no statistics as to how true it is. But the bridge is abundantly decorated with locks and ribbons symbolizing love ties.

2. Magic Scarab

The magic bug may be found on the back of the jacket of a bronze Golokhvastov statue at the famous Andriyivskyy descent. The man is a hero of a popular play ‘Running for Two Rabbits’ by Ukrainian writer Mikhailo Staritsky. The movie based on the book is a kind of cult in Ukraine and nearby countries. Highly recommended to watch! Polish the scarab carefully, and your desire should fulfill.

3. Fountain if Wishes

The fountain is situated in Mikhailovsky (St. Michael’s Golden-Domed) monastery courtyard. To make your wish come true you need to magnetize a coin to the fountain.

4. Magic Animals

There are a few of them. A magic mule stands in Ryl’sky lane close to St. Sophia cathedral. Whisper your wish to its ear – and leave a coin in its carriage.

To use the magic power of a magic hedgehog sitting on the corner of Reytars’ka and Zolotovorits’ka streets you need to touch its quills. And don’t forget to watch the cartoon ‘Hedgehog in the Fog’ it comes from – it’s something awesome!

It gets more complicated with a magic cat Pantyusha standing in Zolotovorits’ky square (near Zoloty Vorota metro station). To make it fulfill your dreams, grab both ears and tail of the creature and make a wish.

5. Mysterious Crocodile

This reptile stands out of the other animals. Try to find it on the frontal of the famous Gorodetsky house (also known as House with Chimeras) – and if you are successful you, may be sure that luck is on your side.

6. Nine Muses

Recommended for creators: tie a thread around one (or few) of the muses standing on Obolonskaya Neberizhna (embankment). This will ensure your fruitful creativity for nearest future.

7. Dnipro River

Want to come back to Kyiv? Throw a coin into the river and make the wish! There is a rumor that drinking water from Samson fountain on Kontraktova square works the same way. But, taking into account the quality of the water, we do not recommend the method.
