Lonely Planet review for outdoor gym
Kyiv's quirkiest sight might just be Hydropark's giant, makeshift outdoor gym. The machines here are cobbled together from used truck parts and salvaged scrap metal. It's a testosterone-fuelled affair, although you'll usually see one or two women amid the muscle. On weekends and summer evenings the gym is packed. Beware: the sight of hundreds of sweaty dudes in Speedos pumping primitive iron could be a little off-putting. To get here, cross the footbridge and bear right.
Next to the outdoor gym is a gymnastics zone that sees surprisingly competent amateurs swinging from horizontal bars.
