The biggest fire station in Europe is situated in Kiev. Fire Fighting Museum will enable us to get to get to know history and modern times of one of the bravest professions. We will see the first fire truck; find out the way fire fighting technique has developed for over a hundred years.
Many of us dreamt to become firemen. We knew it was dangerous, but still wanted it. It seemed great to save someone, no matter a kitten or an old woman, and then walk in full dress proudly. The profession is dangerous, hard, courageous and in a way romantic.
The Museum, which will show us history of fire fighting of the last century, is waiting for us in Kiev Obolon district. We will not deny ourselves the pleasure of getting into the driving seat of the car of 1930th and feel, touch, compare. Imagine what children might think. The world of fire fighting technique opens its secrets for them. After historical part of the excursion we will find ourselves in the manege, where contemporary firemen train, see the famous pipes, which are used by firemen to get down at the alarm signal. Who knows – maybe this necessary profession will induce young excursionists to dedicate themselves to this hard work? And their grown up parents will find it useful to immerge into the world and life of another professional caste – firemen, who are familiar to us only from films and books.
