Kiev as a pearl of the ancient culture
Kiev is a very old city with a centuries-old history. The majority of its attractions are churches, monasteries and religious Orthodox residences. What will be also obvious for newcomers is the quantity of parks and squares in Kiev. Kiev is one of the greenest cities in Europe. Therefore, especially in the summer, be sure to visit the Mariinsky Park or Shevchenko Park, which are central green zones. Moreover, if your impulse and love for nature have no boundaries, go to Feofaniya Park or visit Pirogovo open-air museum or Mezhyhirye Park with English-speaking tour guide (the locals call it the museum of corruption).
Most tourists who come to Ukraine and Eastern Europe are attracted by Soviet architecture. Despite the fact that in 2016 the government adopted the law to dismantle all Soviet monuments and signs, we cannot erase the Soviet past from our reality. High Stalin period buildings in the center, Museum of II War, the Arch of Friendship of peoples – all hints at 72 years of our country’s history as a part of the Soviet Union.
To understand the history of this beautiful city better and without extra efforts, hire a private English-speaking guide who will guide you through the iconic paths of Kiev.
The main and most popular destination among tourists visiting the capital of Ukraine for the first time is the Old Town. The territory of the Old City, which is also a modern city center, includes such iconic landmarks as the Golden Gate, the National Opera of Ukraine, St. Vladimir’s Cathedral, St. Sophia Cathedral, St. Michael’s Gold Dome Cathedral, St. Andrew’s Church, and of course the main square – Independence Square and Khreshchatyk, Kiev main street.
Walking in the old town with a private guide, you will learn about the history of our city from the day of its foundation that has happened in the 5th century! You will also get to know about the modern life of Ukrainians: what worries them, what goals Ukraine sets for itself in the coming years, about its culture and politics.
The advantages of booking a private tour is that you can ask the guide to adjust to your personal interests, not the interests of the group. You can always stop and have a cup of coffee or stay on one object for as long as you want, asking questions that interest you. Flexibility and the fact that the guide is tailored to your interests are the main advantages of this service.
Another undeniable advantage is that the guide and you will speak one language. Ukraine has only recently taken the path of promoting itself as a tourist destination in Europe, and has not yet fully adapted to foreign tourists. Thus, museums do not always have signatures in English, information bureaus do not speak English, and public transport can have difficulties.
Despite these small shortcomings, Kiev is currently dynamically developing and is full of interesting sights. In addition, it is one of the most low-cost travel destinations you can find.
Come to Kiev and you will never regret it!
