Andriivsky Descent is the most popular tourist route. It’s a pedestrian street-museum, one of the oldest streets of the Upper Town, where every inch, every stone speaks the history. On the route you will see St. Andrew’s Church and find out why it doesn’t have a bell tower, hear the legend of Richard’s Castle, visit the One Street Museum or the mystical house N 13 where Bulgakov used to live. On Andriivsky Descent, you can walk for hours. There are theaters, galleries, souvenir market, cozy cafes and observation decks. The duration of the tour is 2-3 hours.

Temples of Kyiv. Kyiv is not only a cultural, but also a spiritual center. Here are hundreds of Orthodox churches and monasteries. The main shrines are the Pechersk Lavra, St. Sophia Cathedral, Vydubitsky and Zverinets Monasteries, founded during the period of Kievan Rus. Every year, thousands of pilgrims come to the monastery to worship the holy sites. Of course, there are temples dedicated to other religions, for example, Catholic, Muslim, Protestant ones. The Jewish community belongs to the Brodsky Synagogue, Rosenberg Synagogue and Galician Synagogue. The duration of the tour is 2-4 hours.

Jewish Kyiv. The Jewish people left one of the deepest traces in the history and culture of Kyiv.

We suggest to walk along the route where Jews of different classes once settled, to see former chapels, the Talmud-Torah, orphanages, mansions, as well as land banks, workshops and other establishments.
