Kiev (or Kyiv) is the capital and the largest city of Ukraine, located in the north central part of the country on the Dnieper River. The name Kiev is derived from the name of Kiy, one of four legendary founders of the city.
By the ancient legend Kiev was founded by three brothers Kiy, Schek, Khoriv and their sister Lybid. They were surprised by the beauty of Dnieper's hills, stopped to settle here and called the town in honour of the eldest brother-Kiev. A monument to the founders was erected at the Dnieper embankment in our days. The town's place was chosen succesfully, the high Dnieper's slopes were perfect protection against the raids of nomad tribes.
Kiev stretches for the space of more than 20 km along the picturesque banks of the biggest Ukrainian river — Dnieper. Its square consists 827 sq.km. The population of Kiev is about 3 millions people.
Kiev is one of the oldest Slavic centres, “Mother of Russian touns” so it was called in olden times, its age is more than 1500 years. The first settlements on the territory of modern Kiev appeared from 15000 till 20000 year ago.
During the time of Vladimir the Great (980-1015) government our city begins to develop especially rapidly. In order to consolidate Kiev Russ and to increase its international influence the prince Vladimir baptised the Russ in 988. Christianity and became that impulse for further development of written language and culture.

Obolonskyi Raion (Ukrainian: ??????????? ?????, Obolons'kyi raion), is a historical raion (administrative district) of the Ukrainian capital Kiev. Its current population is 290,000 inhabitants. It was formed on March 3, 1975 and initially called as Minsky. In 2001 it was decided to rename the raion to its historical name of the region.
During Soviet rule of Ukraine, Kiev had 14 administrative districts. In early 2000s, a new law was passed and the raions were reorganized into 10 raions with different borders and new names.
The Obolon district ecompasses the territories of the former Minskyi district and is still sometimes referred to by that name. It also includes the former town of Pushcha-Vodytsia that used to be part of the Podil Raion. The name Obolon comes from the Ukrainian word which roughly translates as "flood plain". The district was built up in the 1970s as a microdistrict in Kiev on the Obolon sands to satisfy the growth of the city.
With the second construction period (2000–2005), the district has seen new, comfortable apartment buildings constructed closer to the Dnipro river and has become an attractive residential area. The new apartments are also more expensive, although still cheaper than in the center of Kiev.

Then 10-minute walk from the subway to house or you can take a minibus ? 24 or 224 or trolleybus ? 24 and go to - "Prirechnaya" station or walk to the sports center - the "Aquarium".
