The walk down it is rich in history, culture and ofcourse tourists. The 1 km or so will take you only 15 mins but due to all the sights on your way down you are guranteed to spend an hour or two . From the church at the top to Bulghakov's House & Museum and the stalls in between; you... More

It's a nice walk (if you go down the road from Saint Sophia / Saint Michael to Podil neighborhood), full of stalls selling art and souvenirs.

Fantastic long winding street downhill (you can take the nearby funicular back up) past an incredible cathedral with brilliant views, tons of souveneir stands & a huge selection of excellent quality affordable oil & acrylic on canvas paintings

There are cafes and restaurants all the way down, and you passs by the gorgeous St. Andrew's church. At the end of Andrivska you end up in Podil which is an amazing part... More

a wooden barocco style church without bells by Rastrelli is a must! Very special atmosphere. It is allowed to take pictures inside.

Starting from Sofinska square (dont start from podol unless you are ready to walk upstream like a salmon for over one hour), stop on the way to the most beautiful church: s.Andrew , walk along beautiful baroque buildings, stop for lunch at my favorite Kanapa haute ukranian cuisine or resist and continue down until Podol. Reward yourself with Thai or... More

An interesting walk for galleries, old postcards, used cameras, and tourist stuff (T-shirts, shot glasses). But there are more important sights.

The street is full of vendors from silly souvenirs to art work. There are numerous restaurants with a wide variety of cuisine. Walking can be tiring going uphill, so plan a one way trip down to Podil.

It's a nice place, but would be better when all the reconstruction will be done. And a hint... when going down the street, at your left you'll see some black stairs. Climb up and some nice panoramas will open up on Zamkova Gora(Castle Hill)
