Welcome to Kiev, the capital of Ukraine and a city that is rapidly emerging from the doldrums of its Soviet past. Like many developing cities, it is running at two speeds. Versace-clad models and their wealthy benefactors zoom along its roads in black SUVs, while elderly babushkas huddle outside Metro stations begging for a few kopecks. You can dine in restaurants with prices that would shock New Yorkers, or join the masses in McDonald’s on Khreschatyk. Kiev has something for everyone.
This Orthodox Christian monastery attracts pilgrims from all over the world. You don’t need to be religious to appreciate it. The place is stunningly beautiful and boasts many interesting features.
New boutique hotel in the city centre. Close to Khreschatyk and many of the city’s best restaurants, bars, and clubs. Offers 49 contemporary rooms, a restaurant, and bar.
