Andrew’s Descent is one of the oldest and most popular streets in Kiev. Although it enjoys a reputation as the city’s most artistic street, much of it is lined with souvenir stalls selling Soviet paraphernalia, Matryoshka dolls and other mass-produced tourist tack. There are, however, are a few real art galleries including Gallery 36, Triptych and L-Art.
This steep and winding cobbled street links the Upper Town to the district of Podil. The Italian-designed St Andrews Church sits proudly at its peak, while the Bulgakov Museum and the Museum of One Street lie further down.
