Interesting places around Kiev

Nice suburbs around Kiev

Description: Around Kiev, there are many interesting historical places. Within one day you will be able to visit one of them and come back (they are located within 200 km from Kiev). For convenience of your own route, the map is showing the objects and distance to them.

Many nationalities living in Kyiv consider it to be their native city. One of the deepest traces in its history and culture was left by the Jewish community, which derives from the 7th century Khazar community. The chronicle records a significant Jewish community of the 11th-13th centuries in the area of modern Lvivska Square. It’s noteworthy that a famous Israeli politician and Prime Minister Golda Mayer lived not far from there on the Baseina street.

Kyiv is not only famous by its diversity of cultures of the peoples that inhabit it but also by the diversity of religions reflected in its architecture. Despite the abundance of the Orthodox churches and monasteries (Pechersky Monastery, Mikhailivsky Golden-Domed Monastery, etc.) constructed because Kyiv is one of the oldest centers of the Orthodoxy, you can also find there Catholic and Protestant churches, Jewish sinagogues, Muslim mosques and oddly enough – even Hindu temples.

Only in our city you can make a full-scale excursion around only one street which also has a museum of its own history. This street is the Andreevsky Descent (Andriiivskyi Uzviz) – one of the oldest streets of the Old City.

Kyiv fortifications had been formed ever since the beginning of the city. No wonder Kyiv is called a fortress city. Also, for the heroic defense in the World War II, it has even been awarded with an honorary title of the Hero City and the Gold Star. During the excursion in Kiev our guides will tell you not only about the fortifications of the city but also about its heroic past.

Your desire to see Kyiv from the height is quite possible even without a quadrocopter. Nature itself took care of contemporary tourists, having created in the landscape of the city numerous “Kyiv mountains” (Starokyivska, Zamkova, Shchekavytsa, etc.). Kyievians only enhanced those natural viewing points with man-made ones: bell towers of the monasteries (Pechersk Monastery, Sofiivskyi Monastery, Mykhailivskyi Monastery) and monuments (Monument to Woman-Motherland).

Kyiv easily shatters the myth that all the most interesting things in the city are always in its downtown. On the outskirts of Kyiv, there are many attractions, the most interesting of which are the natural parks of Feofaniia (with its many healing springs) and Pushcha Voditsa (with its water in the forest, cold lakes and fringed forests) and others.

However, the biggest treasure of each city is its people. Thus the well-known townspeople make their city even more famous to the world. In Kyiv, many houses are full of signs saying “there lived …” or “there worked …” such and such figure ( of literature, of cinema, of art or monumental art) or a politician.

There are also so-called “places of devilry” or places of power in holy Kyiv. Even in the ancient pagan past the Slavs used to rever mountains struck by lightning (Perun’s menacing weapon). Naturally, the vegetation on such mountains (when hit by lightning) used to burn out, making them not only “bald” but also sacred objects of worshipping. Our guides will turn into beautiful witches and show you these mystical places of Kyiv.

All excursions around Kiev can be adjusted, supplemented and even changed in the course of their passage.
