Take a stroll at the green parks centrally located in the cities, such as Mariyinsky and Khreshchatyj Parks. For a poignant look into the tragedy at Chernobyl Nuclear Plant, visit the National Chernobyl Museum.

The Museum of One Street is definitely a must-go, where the rich history of Ukraine is told through the street of Andriyivsky Descent.

St Sophia Cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage landmark with 11th-century mosaics and interior with paintings over 1000 years old.

You should also visit St Cyril’s Monastery, a small church dating back to the 12th century with 800 sqm of restored frescoes. Also, do not miss the Golden Gate, a medieval city gate that has been reconstructed as a proof of the rich history of Kiev.

Try some hot and piping borscht, a tasty soup full of meat and vegetables, with bread - either buns or dark rye bread - in Kiev.
