Kiev is the Hidden Jewel Of Eastern Europe and fast becoming the coolest Capital city in Europe.
Join us on this amazing 5 day break to this beautiful capital city
Monday 5 October 2020 5 Days / 4 Nights
Geographically, Kiev (Kyiv) sits at the centre of Europe, just three hours flight time from the U.K. In reality it feels like an entirely different world. Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, is the most beautiful city of all the post – soviet countries. It is a city of everything you least expect. The so called “Mother of all Slavic cities”, steeped in history and rich in culture. Kiev is an ancient city where old meets new and East meets West.
Some of the Many Places to Visit
Long known as a mecca for painters, musicians, writers and artisans, the cobbled street of Andriivs’kyi Descent is one of the last remaining places to sense the atmosphere of the pre-Soviet or “old” Kiev, as locals would say. Get a trademark apple cider in Kanapka, visit Karas Gallery and spend an evening at Koleso Theatre, set in a tenement house from the 19th century. Take the stairs to the top of Castle Hill to enjoy magnificent views of this street, dominated by the Baroque St Andrew’s Church.
Unesco-protected Kyiv Pechersk Lavra monastery complex, entrance 30 hryvnias (£0.90), is the main highlight of the Ukrainian capital. Be sure to descend into the dimly lit labyrinth of ancient caves where monks previously dwelt. The experience is enhanced by the presence of the mummified bodies of the saints resting in numerous vaults underground.
St Sophia’s Cathedral, entrance 180 hryvnias, is a Kiev must-see. It was built as the main church for the powerful medieval empire of Kievan Rus and has been a splendid symbol of Kiev ever since. Be awe-inspired by the breathtaking Byzantine interior and well preserved medieval frescoes inside. For fantastic vistas of downtown Kiev, climb the elegant Baroque bell tower, which boasts 360-degree views of the city centre
One of the most instantly recognizable elements of Kiev’s skyline is the magnificent Great Lavra Bell Tower. Built in the 18th century and adorned by more than 50 columns, it’s one of the most beautiful buildings in the city.
