Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, is one of the most interesting tourist destinations in Eastern Europe. It is a city with a rich history that dates back more than 1500 years and many attractions. In this article, we have prepared for you the top 10 places in Kyiv that you should definitely visit right now.


To begin with, to understand what Kyiv was like many centuries ago, you should take a tour that will show you the main historical sights of the city. As part of the package "Around old Kyiv", you will be able to get acquainted with the legendary Kyiv cathedrals, buildings from the times of Kievan Rus, the oldest streets of Europe and other interesting places. 


It is worth noting that Kyiv is interesting both on the surface and underground. As you know, the Ukrainian capital is famous for some of the oldest catacombs that appeared long before the baptism of Kyivan Rus and even the first chronicle mentions of Kyiv. Taking advantage of the "Underground from the railway station to Lukianivka: an individual tour" and "Underground Podil: private tour" offers, you will learn how to get underground to the United States and where the treasure of Roman coins was found.




Since we've already mentioned Podil, it's worth telling you that this metropolitan district is considered one of the oldest in the city. It is located in the valley of the great and mighty Dnipro River. It is the oldest settlement that emerged at the junction of the Old and New Ages. During the times of Kyivan Rus, it functioned as the Lower Town. You can learn more about this area on the tour "Kyiv is impossible without Podil".


It's worth noting that Kyiv is very rich in emotions and is a witness to many heartwarming stories. You can make sure of this by taking an individual tour, "Romantic Stories of Kyiv". During the tour, you will hear about the frank events that took place in Kyiv at different times, starting with the love story of Prince Volodymyr the Great with the Byzantine Princess Anna, and how Princess Olga avenged her husband's death. You will learn how an ordinary Kyiv gymnasium student became the Queen of Siam, how Franz Liszt found forbidden love, and how Nikolai Vrubel found the Demon.


The evolution of the Ukrainian capital is visible to the naked eye. Walking along the historic Andriyivskyi Descent, you can turn in different directions that are completely different from each other. One of them is Landscape Alley, a symbol of Kyiv's modern street culture. But this is not the only example of how the Ukrainian capital is rich in the fascinating world of urban street art. If you want to learn more about Kyiv street art, then you should definitely take advantage of the "Street art Individual tour" offer.




Are you a fan of adult entertainment? Then you should definitely check out the offer "Sinful Podil: a private tour 18+". The tour will acquaint you not only with the history of the district, but also give you the opportunity to plunge into the vibrant life of Kyiv. You will stay in three selected bars, each of which offers its own special atmosphere and the opportunity to enjoy delicious city drinks.


Guests will also be able to immerse themselves in the unique energy of Podil, where history and modern culture converge. From the historic monuments lining the streets to the pulsating entertainment scene, this tour offers a holistic experience that showcases the multifaceted nature of this exciting neighborhood.


As we have already mentioned, the Ukrainian capital is rich in emotions. This is also evidenced by the fact that part of Kyiv is steeped in mystery. The "Secret Kyiv: Individual Tour" excursion invites you to an intriguing journey through unconventional places, discovering mysterious and little-known aspects of the city's history and culture. You will be filled with emotions as you explore hidden alleys, atmospheric courtyards, and cozy corners where history and legends intertwine.




To fully experience the ancient and modern history of Kyiv, you need at least a few days. However, we have a special offer, and for tourists visiting the city for the first time, this tour will be a real treasure. In just one day, you will be able to fully understand this city: see all the sights and hidden atmospheric courtyards that tourists do not know about.
