A Trip Around Kyiv

Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, is on the Dnipro River. The city is more than 1500 years old. The main street of the capital is Khreshchatyk Street. Independence Square is at the northern end of Khreshchatyk Street. It is the most popular place for national celebrations and holiday events.

The historical heart of the city is Podil. All the visitors who come here admire St. Andrew’s Church. Andriyivskiy Uzviz (Descent) is very popular with tourists. It is the best place to buy Ukrainian souvenirs and art and crafts.

St. Sophia’s Cathedral is famous for its beautiful mosaics and frescoes.

The Golden Gate is another monument from the 11th century. It was built during the time of Yaroslav the Wise and it served as the main entrance to the city.
