About the place

The square was formed in 1036 after the construction of St. Sophia Cathedral and at that time was called Starokyivska. The veches, markets and fairs were held here, but later, it was built over. As early as in 1840, the area was cleared. In 1857, the modern boundaries of the square were formed, and in 1869, its current name was assigned. In 1888, a monument to Hetman Bohdan Khmelnytskyi was erected on Sofiiska Square. Since the beginning of the 20th century, it has become a place for various rallies, demonstrations, and socially significant events; in particular, the People’s Movement of Ukraine’s ‘Live Chain’ campaign began here in 1990. After the events of the Revolution of Dignity, the main New Year’s fair has been held, and the country’s main Christmas tree is installed, on Sofiiska Square.
