You’ll be captivated by Stalinist Empire architecture in the heart of Kyiv. A large Independence square and a spacious main street, a massive column, and graceful details of the buildings. 

Kyiv is well known for its onion-shaped golden cupolas of 11th-century cathedrals. However, there is the place in the heart of the city where the spirit of the Soviet epoch is still alive.

Independence Square is the place where all the revolutions take place. It has a very imposing Independence Column and some other unique sights. While taking a stroll along Khreshchatyk street we’ll mingle with the locals. The street was completely devastated during World II by Red Army troops who were retreating from the city and subsequently the street was rebuilt in the neo-classical Stalinist style. Enjoy the buzz of the place with me!

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.
