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

This is probably a must see for the tourists who come to Kiev to get their fill of the tourististic memorabilia. The whole street is lined with some good and some very bad art works, crafts, and old soviet memorabilia. If you are interested in getting some old soviet army medals, statues, and other tourist type things, this is the... More

I remember that Andrivskiy uzviz many years ago was much more art place than it is now. In our days less and less real authentic Ukrainian artist are present here. More and more different Chinese products. But any way Andriyivsky will be always Good place to visit.

We lived at number 34, there was always things happening on the Spusk, from the little craft stalls that were there whatever the weather, to the events of the national holidays, demonstrations and people spotting. In heavy rain, the Spusk turns into a river as the water from the city centre makes its way back to the mighty Dnipro, but... More

I come here every time I want to have a calm walk amoung old building, to find a good cafe, listen to the street musicians, look at paintings and feel the atmospheric Kiev. And it never disappoints me!)

I have really enjoyed walking across the street, full of unique old antiques, maybe not real but sevouners were amazing with big variety. But what has really disappointed me while waking through is whenever I stop to take some pictures for the shown out sevouners, I kept being asked to pay for my pictures. Even when I was taking a...

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
