In the spring Kyiv looks like a garden-city. Then the chestnut trees kindle their rosy-white candles among the green leaves, the streets and parks are filled with the delicate aroma of the flowers, the hilly slopes along the Dnieper are fragrant with lilacs. The green lawns of the large and small city squares are bright with red tulips.
Kyiv is known as the cradle of Slavonic civilization. It was the capital of the first Old Rus state or Kyivan Rus, “mother of Russian cities”. The historical fate of Kyiv is related to great political and cultural events in Europe and this is displayed in many ancient monuments of architecture.
2148 registered objects of history and culture are located in Kyiv. 39 objects have the international value such as St.Sofia Cathedral built in the ХІ–ХІІ centuries and complex of the Kyiv-Pecherskyi National preserve, included in the UNESCO list of the world historical heritage. Nowaday Kyiv is a capital of Ukraine, one of the most beautiful world cities.
We recommend visiting such sights as the Mariyinskyi Palace, the Park of Victory, the Kyiv-Pecherskyi Monastery sites, the St.Sofia and Andriyivska churches, the Golden Gates. Museum of the Second World War is one of the most known museums in Kyiv. The Bogdan Khmelnitskyi and the Volodymir the Greate monuments are worth seeing too.
