About the place

Khreshchatyk is the shortest and widest main street in Europe, running from the Yevropeiska (European) Square to Bessarabska Square. It began to built up only in the 19th century, and before that, it had been a wooded marshland called Khreshchatyi Yar, hence the name. Later, the first theatre in Kyiv, a skyscraper, and the first electric tram in the Russian Empire and the second in Europe were built there. Most buildings of modern Khreshchatyk were erected as part of the street’s post-war reconstruction in Stalin’s ‘Empire’ style. Among the notable buildings on Khreshchatyk street is the Ukrainian House, Druzhba cinema (the building with a star crowning it), the Central Department Store, Kyiv City State Administration, the Kyiv Passage and others. Open-air entertainment events, processions and rallies are often held there.
