What to do in Kiev

About Kiev

With a rich and varied history dating back to the 5th century, Kiev presents a fascinating mix of European and Russian heritage. Located on the banks of the Dnieper River, the city's most prominent and interesting attractions include Saint Sophia’s Cathedral, the Mikhail Bulgakov Museum and the iconic Motherland Monument. Despite being the largest city in Ukraine and one of the largest in Europe, Kiev is surprisingly green with multiple parks and open spaces. There is even a beach on the banks of the river, which is a popular place to relax in the summer months. Kiev is served by two airports and also has a large international train station with connections to many European capitals.

What to see in Kiev

Kiev's skyline is dominated by churches and cathedrals with Saint Sophia’s being one of the most opulent. As well as the Byzantine architecture, you can also visit the dome for excellent views across the city. The Baroque St. Andrew’s Church and Pechersk Lavra Monastery are another two must-see religious sites. The Motherland Monument on the banks of the Dnieper River can be seen from all across the city and can be visited daily between 10.00 a.m. and 6.00 p.m.

Ukraine has a long and often turbulent history and there are many museums documenting significant historical periods. The Museum of the History of Ukraine in the Second World War and the National Museum of the History of Ukraine are two such examples. As well as having a fascinating history, Kiev is a vibrant, modern destination. Book a hotel in Kiev to experience its lively bar scene, trendy vintage shops, excellent restaurants, and varied entertainment options. Many people also choose to visit nearby Chernobyl, the site of the tragic 1986 nuclear disaster.

Where to stay in Kiev

Located on the right bank of the river is Holosiivskyi District. This is the largest of the city's districts and is also considered the centre of the capital. Awash with cafes and shops, Holosiivskyi is also home to several metro stations and the main train station. For culture and art lovers, Pecherskyi District is the place to be. Home to attractions such as the National Parliament and a number of cinemas and libraries, Pecherskyi runs from Independence Square to the Pechersk Lavra Monastery Complex. Podilskyi District is a particularly historic area and an excellent location for finding hotel offers. It is also located close to the river and is where you'll find St Andrew’s Church and the Mikhail Bulgakov Museum.

Across the river on the left bank is Dniprovskyi District. Many of the city's green spaces are located here as well as the Hydropark, with its waterfront beach and famed ice hole where locals are partial to taking a plunge in the winter months.
