Come with me and explore Kyiv like never before! On this interactive live virtual tour, we’ll see the great architectural monuments left to us from the Kyivan Rus period more than 1500 years ago. You will visit the Upper Towns of Kyiv and see its ancient landmarks located in the most popular tourist places.

St. Sophia Cathedral is a magnificent Kyivan Rus temple which was built in the 11th century. If walls could talk, they might tell us about plunders and the everyday lives of the first rulers of this world. The cathedral has stunning mosaics and frescos that were created back in the 11th century by Byzantine masters.

Golden Gate served as a triumphal entrance and ancient city fortifications of the 11th century. You will learn why they are called Golden and if they have ever been conquered.

Monument to Bogdan Khmelnitsky

You will learn about Ukrainian Cossacks and Bulava- the symbol of hetman’s authority.

Monument to Prince Yaroslav the Wise. The era of the reign of Yaroslav the Wise was the era of the blossom of Kyivan Rus. You’ll know why he’s call father-in-law of Europe.

Later we will stroll on a lovely cobblestone street full of cafes, restaurants and drop into the famous Drunk Cherry bar where Ukrainians enjoy sweet cherry liquor.

Let’s uncover the rich and turbulent history of this city.

Hi, I’m Olga. I think that that sharing is the best way to show my passion for Kyiv.  I know the best ways to show Kyiv as a hidden gem of Europe in a fun and engaging way. My love for culture, history, languages led the way to this amazing tour guiding calling. I’m a professional tour guide in Kyiv, licensed by the Ukrainian Tourist Guide Association. I endeavor to make my tours organized and fun, informative and delightful. I adore entering the ancient churches or climbing to the secret places for great views of Kyiv. My unique collection of old traditional Ukrainian recipes makes me an expert in cooking Borsch, Varenyky (filled dumplings), and Chicken Kyiv.
