Thisplace takes you back in the past! Have your walking shoes on and let's go for a walk! The street is full of different old ukrainian things, pictures, souvenirs one can see and buy. And if you are tired stop by for a small bite at one of the cafes!

the street, linking the upper and lower towns, is very charming, full of artists hawking their (not so great) paintings and handicrafts, with many places for a drink or a nosh, and on a Sunday, packed with Kievers on a stroll. Bulgakov's house and St. Andrew's Church are on it too. It's one of the high spots of Kiev.

Loved Andriyivski Uzviz!!! It is like being put into a very authentic little piece of history - with the cobblestone street weaving its way from the lower part of the city - Podol, to the upper part - St. Andrew's Church. The street has a feel of the set of an old movie (Za Dvoma Zaytsyami), and hosts the myriad... More

St. Andrew's church at the top of the street is a wonderful start to the adventure on this street. It literally goes for blocks. Yes you can barter and many of the vendors understand English if you Ukrainian/Russian is minimal. You need a few hours for sure. They pretty much have a little of everything to purchase.

Great area of Kiev to buy souveniers, however be warned, on sale is a lot of old materials, some are copies, Nazi memorabilia, cameras etc,. These things can be confiscated at customs and if anything is over 50 years old these can be confiscated too. It is though a great street and you can barter.

This is a beautiful area adorned with beautiful buildings on a very hilly street. My favourite part is the tourist shopping. The street is about 2 kilometres long and loaded with vendors selling their hand made items, everything from magnets to beautiful paintings. Every time I'm in Kiev I spend an hour or two there and make a few purchases.... More
