Outdoor Gym

Outdoor Gym

On an island in the middle of the Dnipro river in Kyiv, Ukraine, is a kind of summer resort area with night clubs, bars, fairground rides and beaches for swimming in the river. There is also an open-air gym that was built in the 1980s by a professor of cybernetics. It is made entirely from recycled machinery, such as tractor parts, tyres and chains. It is completely free for everyone all year round.

The ground is soft and the air is filled with the constant clank and squeak of the machinery.
