Kiev Holidays Overview


Kiev is the largest city and the capital of Ukraine with more than 2.7 million inhabitants. The city dates back to the 5th century and is among the oldest cities of Eastern Europe. It is also an important cultural, educational and industrial centre.

The most important historical attractions of Kiev are the architectural complexes of Monastery of the Caves and St. Sophia Cathedral. These World Heritage Sites feature beautiful architecture. Other noteworthy historical landmarks in the city include St. Vladimir's, St. Andrew's, St. Michael's Cathedral, the Mariyinsky Palace and the Golden Gate.

The House With Chimaeras, the beautiful Salut Hotel, the Mother Motherland statue and the eternal flame are other attractions worth visiting in Kiev.

Kiev has a large number of museums among which the most noteworthy are the National Museum of Russian Art, Pinchuk Art Centre, Museum of Western and Oriental Art, National Art Museum and Kiev State Historical Museum. The World War II Museum offers outdoor and indoor displays of equipment and military history and is located by the Dnieper River, surrounded by beautiful hills.

Kiev is a very green and lush city with a large number of parks and two good botanical gardens. One of the most popular attractions and the best historic streets in the city is Andriyivskyy Descent. This is the location of the St. Andrew's Baroque style church, Castle of Richard the Lionheart, Mikhail Bulgakov's home and the Yaroslav the Wise monument.

Kiev holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. St Sophia Cathedral
24 Vladimirskaya Street
What is it? Dating back to the 11th century, the exquisite green- and gold-domed St Sophia Cathedral was an important centre for Soviet Rus. It has been damaged and repaired over the years, and today is a blend of architectural styles from nine different centuries. Perhaps one of the most striking aspects of the Cathedral is its impressive collection of Byzantine mosaics and frescoes that date back to its inception. The Cathedral also serves as a living text; hundreds of pieces of graffiti relating political and historical events spanning the centuries can still be seen today. Hours of Operation: Phone:

 

 

2. Kiev-Pechersk Lavra (Caves Monastery)
25 Sichnevogo Povstannya Street
www.lavra.kiev.ua
What is it? Kiev-Pechersk Lavra (the Caves Monastery) is a fascinating living piece of history dating back to 1051. The Venerable Anthony, a devout monk, settled in a cave on the western bank of the Dnieper River. He was soon joined by his followers and their numbers swiftly began to outgrow the caves. Prince Izyaslav and other Kievan aristocracy were frequent visitors to the Venerable Anthony and donated money to build a church and aboveground monastery. Since that period, the Monastery has continued to grow and is still active today, serving as an important centre of Orthodox Christianity and reflecting a fascinating way of life.

3. Great Patriotic War Museum
44 Sichnevogo Povstannya
What is it? Dominated by the enormous, towering statue of the Motherland (looking like the sword-wielding sister of the Statue Of Liberty) above it, the Great Patriotic War Museum houses a fascinating collection of World War II artefacts in a Soviet-built building. Decommissioned tanks sit outside the museum, symbolically painted with flowers and nearby, another interesting statue entitled 'To the Fallen' serves as a memorial to all those who fought and died in the war. Although most of the museum notes are in either Russian or Ukrainian, they are well laid out and the displays are fascinating. Hours of Operation: Closed Mondays Phone:
