Kiev straddles both sides of the Dnipro River, with its centre on the western bank (rather confusingly referred to as the Right Bank).
The areas most frequented by tourists are:
|Centre/Upper Town||Includes Khreschatyk and many of the city’s hotels and restaurants.|
|Podil/Lower Town||One of the oldest districts in Kiev is now home to several boutique hotels and numerous restaurants. Connected to the Upper Town by Andrew’s Descent and the Funicular.|
|Pechersk||The political centre of Kiev and home to a variety of historical monuments including the Caves Monastery and the Motherland Monument.|
