Lots of restaurants and designer shops. Main shopping street in Kiev. The road was all closed off when we went due to the blockades.

The street is closed on a Sunday so those who want to be seen walk the street in their Sunday best. Great way to relax on a sunny day sitting outside with a coffee

I've been to Kyiv several times. Always walk through Khreschatyk. Ever entertaining ! Of course there is Bessarabska market and an excellent Internet Cafe on one end and Maiden Square and Globus on the other. Something for everyone. Great people watching !
