About the place

The next location is the opposite side of the Independence Square, near the Liadski Gate. To get there, we will go through an underground passage, which Kyivites call ‘truba’ (a ‘pipe’). It is an equally prominent cultural and gastronomic centre of Kyiv. The 21-metre-wide passage opened in 1968 became the first underground shopping street in Ukraine.

On an area of over 3.5 thousand square meters, there were 14 retail outlets of the widest profile: from cafeterias and theatre booking offices to haberdashery and newspaper kiosks. The so-called Shaiba (Disk), a round coffee shop in the middle of the passage filling the entire space of the underground passage with the intoxicating smell of coffee enjoyed special attention. More than one generation of Kyivites ordered their double half and Kyiv ristretto here.
