About this tour
Both women and men all over the world need romance and love, right?
Our city is no exception! It is a witness to many soulful stories.
I offer a thematic excursion, during which you will hear candid stories that happened in Kyiv at different times, starting from the love story of Prince Volodymyr the Great to Byzantine Princess Anna, how Princess Olga took revenge for her husband's death. You will learn how an ordinary Kyiv high school student became the queen of Siam, F. Liszt found a forbidden love, and M. Vrubel found a Demon. You will also see the House of the "crying widow", find out what widow it is and why she cries, and also find out where you can find the Bridge of Lovers (or kisses) and you can rub the wedding ring on the hand of the luxurious Prona Prokopivna for happiness in love and marriage.
St. Vladimir's Cathedral
It is the most famous cathedral in Kyiv. The main temple of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church was erected over 20 years from 1862 to 1882. It was built in the Russian-Byzantine style, the temple is richly painted from the inside by famous artists of that time, such as V. Vasnetsov, M. Nestorov, M. Vrubel, V. Zamirailo, S. Kostenko, N. Pimonenko.
House of the Weeping Widow
The House of Weeping Widow is an Art Nouveau edifice, architected by Edward Petrovich Bradtmanu, built in 1907. On the outside, it has retained the original look, featuring large doors, grey granite, stucco decorations, artificial stone blocks and labradorite. The upper part of the façade displays a sculpted head of a woman, which gives the house its name – when it rains, the water, pouring down the woman’s cheeks, creates an illusion of a crying face.
Princess Olga Monument
Monument to Princess Olga at Mikhailovskaya Square in Kyiv is a sculptural composition consisting of a central monument to the Grand Duchess, pedestals to the educators of the Slavic peoples - Cyril and Methodius, located on the right, and a monument to the Apostle Andrew the First-Called to the left of the Princess.
