In the 1860s, along streams paved railroad. The most recognizable in the picture - the train station (1) (Not the one, of course, that was discovered almost 140 years ago, and his successor, entered service in 1932). Lybed itself nowadays - the collector, and partly hide under the ground and flows, "dashed". But in some places near the station, it can be review (2). Street at the front - Starovokzalna (3). His former name - Stepanovskaya - it lost in 1930 when, after opening of the new station has ceased to lead to the passenger building. Along Starovokzalna and intersecting it Zhylianska - industrial buildings. Some, though and many times rebuilt, partly retain old look (4) - even with the time when in 1897 the coast turned Lybed South Russian Engineering plant, which participated in the building, by the way, Vladislav Gorodetsky. In January 1924 the company became known as "Lenin's smithy". At the corner of Starovokzalna and Zhylianska - body with working the dining room (5): typical example of architectural constructivism. And along the streets of the then Communist International built a gigantic building boiler plant - the largest in Kiev. More recently it was empty though, but stood still, thinking to remake a another mall, but in the end ... demolished. Now there huge an extensive area (6): sure, will stand idle for long. Part premises "Forge ..." has departed for supermarkets. In their rear was perched forlornly bronze Lenin on a pedestal (7). In 1946 it officially established in the middle of the factory area, and now workers otovaritsya in stores, suit behind the leader, "razlivayku." Free at the crossroads where now parked car, reminiscent of the years 1908-1914 in-built and demolished in 1930 Ilyinsk Temple (8). In the land must still sitting more than 670 bored piles, which the architect Eugene Ermakov planted his creation. Next - TEC-3, the firstborn of centralized heating in the pre-war Kiev (9). Many will remember next to a massive housing CHP cooling tower for cooling water. Few people know that about this place until the early 1930s, housed one of the largest synagogues in Kiev, built in 1897. And now - you can see the circular pool (10) ... The street is Saksaganskogo Pharmaceuticals Plant (in Soviet times far exude a smell of penicillin). It also survived and the former mansion of a famous chemist Adolf Martsinchika Kiev (11) in the yard which began its work plant. And here is the opposite Beach Lybed: went up the hill chain of standard 16-etazhek the street Uritskogo (12). And nearby, in a hollow, invisible to most people of Kiev are growing vast new complex of residential buildings on the street Mekhanizatorov (13). Itself This trough (14) is known, recently was considered odious, - Kuchmin sp. Over it - Batu Mountain. They say he looked Batu Khan here on the besieged Kiev. However, most historians agree that the mountain has Batu to the ruler of the Mongol-Tatars, the same attitude as Kuchmin ravine - to the ex-president Ukraine.
