Kiev in April 2016, all the rest

Here are the rest photos from Kiev in April 2016 that I wanted to share.

In Kiev, there are several peculiar subways. The stairways from the crossing streets run down in a form of an arc, uncovered. The entrance to the subway is where the stairways meet:

These graphics in one of the subways represent the Ukrainian cities:

A manhole cover:

An airplane pictogram confusingly points in wrong direction:

The university is painted with a crazy colour:

At night it looks infernal:

Wall art:

Another example:

There was an exhibition of painted eggs on a square — many looked beautiful:
