This post is to share the HDR photo made inside the Kiev funicular station. The HDR is made of 2 sets of 3 images of ±2EV and then merged to the single photo.
The funicular connects Uppertown and Podil. It was built during 1902-1905. The funicular was the project of Arthur Abrahamson, the engineer worked on railroads of Zürich, Switzerland and Saint Petersburg, Russia. The station vestibules were designed by N. Piatnitskiy.
The first name of the funicular was Mikhailivs’kyi Mechanichnyi Pidyom (that means Michael’s Mechanical Lifting) because of the St. Michael’s Cathedral which was located not too far. After the cathedral was blown up by Soviets the name of the funicular was changed.
