Description:

A classic panorama of late imperial Kyiv with a view of the University main building from Kruhlouniversytetska / Kruty Uzviz street. A big number of similar photos, taken in the 1860s-1910s, affords an opportunity to trace back the process of urban modernization of Kyiv, as well as that of the waves of housing themselves. A characteristic feature of this panoramic perspective is the domination of the majestic structure of the University main building over the visually small and somewhat chaotic though regular housing of the lowland. Bibikovsky boulevard with poplars is present in almost all photos of this kind, as well as the waste area in front of the University and the Bessarabsky market.

The photo is taken from a higher than usual place on Kruty Uzviz from where a significant view of the University opens. It reflects the process of modernization: in the midground we can see mostly multistoried row housing, while in the foreground on the left, there is a one-storied mansion and an unimproved area of the carriageway (no pavement, no specified sidewalks etc.). One can also see pavilions of the Bessarabsky market below and the St. Volodymyr cathedral in the distance.
