About this tour

The capital of any country arouses the interest of all tourists. And when the capital is a real hero city, this interest is several times greater. For those tourists who visit Kyiv for the first time, this tour will become a real treasure. In just one day, you will be able to fully understand this city: see all the sights, as well as hidden atmospheric courtyards that tourists do not know about. We will drink coffee in the old part of the city, looking at the architecture of the 19th century, visit ancient cathedrals, enjoy views of Kyiv from above, taste delicious local dishes, buy souvenirs made by Ukrainian craftsmen, learn about the prehistory of traditions, mentality and modern way of life of Kyivans.


The capital of our country was the main target of the Russian invaders from the beginning of hostilities, which they planned to capture in 3 days. But thanks to the professionalism of our military and the courage of the local territorial defense, Kyiv survived, once again proving the indomitability of the Cossack spirit and the indomitability of the Ukrainian people. The aggressor to the whole world justifies his actions in relation to our country. And the main task of a courageous people is to convince everyone that the truth is on our side, attracting as many people as possible to witness these terrible crimes.

You can list for a long time the areas in which residential buildings, commercial real estate and infrastructure objects, schools, kindergartens were crushed by rockets – these consequences are visible everywhere. The shelling of a shopping center in the Podilskyi district, the damage to the TV tower near the Dorogozhichi metro station, the mutilated facade of the Kyiv Small Opera Theater on Degtyarivska Street are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition, as a result of the bombing of the city, the occupiers hit the radioactive waste storage facility of the Kyiv branch of "Radon Association". In Kyiv, the city authorities and volunteers urgently resorted to the protection of sculptures and monuments, architectural structures that have a huge historical and cultural significance for the planet. In particular, protective structures were erected around the monuments to St. Volodymyr on the slopes of the Dnipro, Bohdan Khmelnytskyi, Peter Sagaidachnyi, Taras Shevchenko, and Mykhailo Hrushevskyi (near the University). Sandbags protected the Samson fountain, the sculptural composition on Mykhailivska Square (Princess Olga, Andrew the First-Called, and enlighteners Kirylo and Methodius), the Dante Alighieri monument, and the Magdeburg Law monument and column. And you won't see the stained-glass windows of the Funicular, famous for their beauty – they are covered with shields. Also, the construction of roadblocks and defensive fortifications, especially on the outskirts of the city: concrete blocks, sandbags and anti-tank hedgehogs became a common feature of the capital's landscape.
