What attractions in Kiev to visit? — Guide me UA
Planning your trip to Kiev and don’t know what to start with?
The first question that you will surely ask is whether it is safe to go to Kiev. And YES, it is! Just a few weeks ago, the final of the UEFA Champions League Final 2018 took place, which was attended by 50 thousand football fans. And every year millions of tourists come to Ukraine. So lets set up what attractions in Kiev to visit.
And this is must-see places in Kiev:
The Lavra Monastery
In the distant 1051 year, a monk Anthony settled in a cave in one of the forests of the Kiev hills. His piety was attracting believers, people wanted to be his disciples. The number of monks began to grow, soon they left the dungeons; today the caves are only an object of pilgrimage. But when visiting caves, you can see the mummified bodies of holy monks, if you do not have claustrophobia. Take a local by Guide me UA to bring you there.
Private Tours to the Lavra Monastery were organized for large groups, as well as for small and solo-tourists:
Mezhyhirya Mansion of Yanukovych
Tourists, who have already experienced Kiev tour to Mezhyhirya, unanimously repeat: “We want to come back here. Mezhyhirya shall be the National Park of Ukraine!”
From the outside, Honka where Viktor Yanukovich lived with Lyubov Polezhai and her daughter is relatively modest, but inside it is a model of merchant’s insatiable craving for luxury. Every detail, every accessory of the interior costs crazy sums of money by any standard: for example, the price of door handle was 43 thousand dollars, the chandelier — 350 thousand USD, etc. Just imagine: the former owner has paid 1.695.744 EUR for woodworks for the dining room and tearoom!
Try Kyiv Perepichka
Perepichka — the legendary sausage in fried dough, the must-have snack if you are the guest of the Ukrainian capital. You will certainly define this place by the long queue.
St. Andrew’s Church in Kiev
Remarkable attraction that definitely worth your attention! This baroque church sits majestically on top of Andriyivska Hill and was built in the mid-18th by Italian architect. Climbing the viewing platform of the church, you will discover a magnificent view of the oldest part of the city — Podol. The church itself is closed until 2010.
Kiev speak-easy bars
Of course bars are not attractions, but many go on vacation to relax and visit beautiful restaurants with delicious cocktails, and in Kiev there are many such places. Take notes: Parovoz speak easy bar, Alchemist Bar, Loggerhead, Barman Diktat, Hangover. Unfortunately, most of these bars you will not find, since they are hidden in backyard, you need a Nightlife Guide.
