What we love about Kyiv
For me the best word that describes this city is exotic. The contrasts in the city are visible everywhere, especially in architecture - on one side you have soviet architecture and massive building blocks on the other side beautiful churches and monasteries. Have a walk along Dnieper river and don't miss the opportunity to climb the bell tower of St.Sophia's cathedral from spectacular panorama views!
Kyiv is so exciting, so grandiose. I could feel it at the very first moment my feet touched the ground and this impression became a certainty as days spent in Kyiv passed. The city is like the oversized version of Paris, which itself is not a small city... but somehow everything looked so much greater here. It might be the geographical situation, with the hills and valleys in the heart of Kyiv which makes the Ukrainian capital invincible... at least in my heart.
The best memory of Kyiv to me is related to the variety of restaurants and night bars, each one better than the next. The capital of Ukraine is very vibrant and there is always something going on, you just need to get at the right place at the right time. Of course, there is so much to learn about Ukraine's complex history and there are few important historical sites to visit while in Kyiv. Maybe the most special one is Kyiv Pechersk Lavra-a very unique spiritual site, but you should only visit if you don't suffer from Claustrophobia. The very impressive Saint Sophia Cathedral is protected by UNESCO and must be visited while in Kyiv.
