Many foreign tourists find it amazing that Kyiv has beaches.
I still take great pride in explaining to people when I am abroad that Kyiv has some great beach spots. You can imagine the surprise. The majority of foreigners cannot imagine that Kyiv would have even one beach, let alone several. Plus many of these places now have full service facilities.
Can you imagine London with beaches? I don't think so.
