From St. Michael’s Square to Independence Square, one can find many symbols of victorious Ukrainian freedom hidden from the ancient times of Kyivan Rus to the present day of sovereign Ukraine. A well-known route to Kyivites and guests of the capital goes from the park of St. Michael’s Cathedral, through the Volodymyr Hill and the Klitschko Bridge, to the very heart of Kyiv. However, in reality, it contains many significant symbols of national independence, about which we know little.
The millennia-old history of Kyiv is shrouded in legends of mystical places, mysterious buildings, and the disturbing antics of ‘supernatural entities.’ This route is for true daredevils and desperate seekers of answers to still unsolved mysteries.

Modern, bright, bustling Kyiv attracts business-minded, proactive, goal-oriented people. Banks and hotels, markets and shopping streets, exhibition and congress centres with their unique histories and architecture are must-sees in the capital.
This route will take you to the places and sites that show careful attitude to environment and individual ecosystems; you will get a feeling of the atmosphere of unity with nature that inspires, and learn about the environmental problems of a big city that need to be addressed.
In this route, you will learn about outstanding political figures and famous figures of Ukrainian culture, their significant contribution to the development of the Ukrainian society, and get acquainted with their lyrical love stories.
Today, Kyiv is a multicultural city where you can taste popular dishes and drinks from many countries around the world.
