The Skating Rink “Kryzhynka”
If you want your child to learn skating, then “Kryzhynka” rink will suit you perfectly.
The rink has already celebrated its 25th anniversary and is dramatically in need of cardinal reconstruction. The general appearance of the building is “screaming” for a help. But at the moment it is only a dream. By the way, it is the only place where the future figure skaters of the School of Olympic Reserve can train their skill.
That means that a quality of ice here is quite decent. Though it may seem too simple. It is located almost in the center of Kyiv. Therefore, the rink is not always available – the skating session lasts less than an hour and not very regularly.
About the time of free riding one can enquire in advance by telephone. The skating rink attracts a great number of people by reasonable prices. Also the atmosphere here is incredibly cheerful.
The staff pays the attention not only to the younger generation, but also to adults. Moms and dads form adult group of figure skating, where they are supervised by experienced instructors and trainers. The children can be taught figure skating when they are at least 3 years old. And the youth can have a real fun on Saturday nights at discos.
