My favorite walking street in Kiev. Magic atmosphere with old macadam, a lot of hand made shops, cozy cafes. Nice place to spend weekend day.

Андріївський Узвіз is a fabulous experience if you enjoy looking at a beautiful church, shopping from souvenir stalls, and buying the odd coffee out of the back of a van. I spent a month in Kyiv and regularly popped down the Descent to find a few odd bits of things to take home. It's a descent: a steep hill, very... More

if you have never been here you must visit that! You can buy here a lot of souvenirs and it's a good way to start explore Kiev, and take pictures of beautiful capital of Ukraine. It's so close to different destinations like St Andrew's Church and museums, restaurants, gallery. It's a quiet street without cars.

Plenty of craft stalls, a great cafe near the bottom, and the Bulgakov House museum around the middle.

This is an interesting walk either up or down hill in a very historic part of the city. Lining the streets are stalls selling all sorts of items ranging for good quality pictures to some absolute tat. However it is a great place for hunting out souvenirs. When I was there it was very steep and slippery in the ice... More

This is an old historical area in Kyiv. Every building there has its own story and now many of them are having artists' studios inside. In the area you can buy different Ukrainian souvenirs or paintings. On the top there is a St. Andrew's Church. Along the street there is a lot of pubs/bars/cafes etc. It also has a few... More

Sure, this is a tourist trap. Sure, there are some Chinese made products. Sure, you may have a heart attack if you walk all the way up this hill. In the end though, you will find all your souvenir needs met here for reasonable prices.

It is a historic descent connecting Kyiv's Upper Town and the historically commercial Podil neighborhood. The street is called as the "Montmartre of Kyiv". Here you can buy souvenirs and enjoy lots of paintings, handcrafted items, embroideries
