About the place

Kyiv’s main square is located between nine central streets of the capital: Khreshchatyk, Borysa Hrinchenka, Sofiivska, Mala Zhytomyrska, Mykhailivska, Kostelna, Arkhitektora Horodetskoho streets, the Heavenly Hundred Heroes Alley, and Tarasa Shevchenka Bystreet. The square acquired its modern look after reconstruction in 2001. It was when the first in Ukraine, large underground shopping centre Globus was opened here, and the Independence Monument, monuments to the founders of Kyiv and to Cossack Mamai were erected here.

Among other attractions in the square are the Liadski Gate, a copy of one of the gates that led to Ancient Kyiv, the Zero Kilometre, a starting point in measuring the distances between Ukrainian cities and world capitals; Petr Tchaikovsky National Academy of Music, the oldest musical institution of higher education; Main Post Office, and the House of Trade Unions. In 2017, light and musical fountains were opened in the square.
