  • Tourist attractions

    Pechersk Lavra

    A must visit place for everyone. This huge complex of Cave Monasteries is over 1000 years old and is listed on UNESCO World’s Heritage List. Since the foundation it’s been the very center of Eastern Orthodox Church in that part of the world. The monasteries are incredibly beautiful, with golden domes that shine in the sun. But the insides are even better!

    Saint Sophia’s Cathedral and St. Michael’s Golden Domed Monastery

    Saint Sophia’s Cathedral, the oldest church in Kyiv that is also on UNESCO World Heritage List. The complex isn’t as big as Pechersk Lavra but consists quite a few buildings, among them are the Cathedral, Bell Tower or the high school. This unique place got its name from Hagia Sophia in Istanbul and is of such an outstanding beauty too.

    Andriyivskyy Descent and Podil

    This part of Ukrainian capital feels like a small town and not a huge city. It’s the area where Kyiv’s artists and bohema used to live and places. Probably that’s why it’s often called "Montmarte of Kyiv”. It’s the best to see the area from the surrounding hills and Zamkova Hora that offer a spectacular views or this colorful part of the city.

    If you’re prepared to go off the beaten track, ask around for Sculptures Alley. Founded in the 1980s, it’s an ever-evolving art installation featuring bold and exciting sculptures. More are added each year, so it’s worth travelling to Kyiv just to see the latest additions.

  • Leisure activities

    If the cityscape leaves you yearning for some wide-open space, the obvious answer is to head for Kyiv’s centre. There, you’ll find Holosiiyiskyi Park, offering over 4,500 hectares of forest, grassland, lakes and wetlands. The park is home to an abundance of flora and fauna. Wildlife enthusiasts will find it’s not long before you’re spotting endangered butterflies, birds, lizards, bats and even polecats. Getting around the park is easy enough, all you have to do is pack a picnic, hire a bike, and leave the busy streets behind you.

    Café culture is tremendously popular in Kyiv, and if you just want to sit and watch the world go by, Independence Square is the best place to do it. Packed with cafés, the square contains some beautiful fountains, but the centrepiece is undoubtedly the impressive Statue to Ukrainian Independence. Maidan, as the square is known by the locals, has been the site of many political rallies and the spirit of freedom is very much in the air here.

     

  • Food

    Ukrainian cuisine is eclectic and extends far beyond the traditional borscht soup you might first think of. The most popular restaurants are to be found around Maidan Square, where you can expect dishes such as caviar and blinis, and lamb served with a barley risotto. You might also want to sample some street food on your trip to Kyiv. If so, look out for Banosh, a savoury mixture of cornflour, sheep’s cheese, sour cream and locally grown white mushrooms.

  • Shopping

    When it comes to shopping, Kyiv is a surprising mix of markets and malls. Besarabsky Market is perhaps the most famous market in the city, offering excellent linens, jewellery, art and ceramic goods. Travelling to Kyiv puts you in touch with a modern city that also embraces its traditional heritage, which can be seen in the crafts and particularly the embroidery on offer in its boutiques.

    Clean, sleek malls are more popular and these are where you’ll find high-end goods, such as clothes and electronics. Check out the Mandarin Plaza, which has seven levels of stores and restaurants.
