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

It's not the same place it used to be. These days it seems to be indefinitely under construction (with not much renovation actually happening). But it's a beautiful street, with traditional Ukrainian architecture, the St. Andrew's Church, lots of souvenirs (especially on the weekends and in the Spring/Summer). Don't be lazy to take the steep staircases that are on both... More

If you're in Kiev during the winter, be advised that the street vendors don't start setting up until about noon. One way to get there is by taking the funicular down (or up depending on where you're staying) and then heading north on the street (Sahaidachnoho St.) until you get to the area on your map. Head back up the... More

This route can be used for a variety of purposes, but mainly if you want to either pick up some "traditional" Ukrainian gifts, or take a shortcut into the Podil district. Lets focus on the former. Quite a few interesting souvenirs can be bought along here but, with the exception of the Nazi memorabilia towards the bottom, the pattern pretty... More

Go there is you want to buy some crafts souvenirs, some old soviet junk usually loved by collectors. There are some decent caffees and couple of interesting buildings. Prices might be biting.... so have to watch out for deals....

It is like any other tourist place from the one side. Nice walk down the street with the beutifull views on the historic city and churches. Hundreds of vendors trying to ell you staff and ready to negotiate. Never pay the price you asked first! The difference - a lot of vendors are actually selling some unique local things done... More

Almost everything we bought in Kiev for us and family came from the multitude of friendly vendors on this hilly street. Everyone was very nice, and the selection of items is great. U.S. Dollars were no problem, and neither was communication. We bought everything from traditional items to funny t-shirts for the kids. I suggest you be prepared to go... More
