The recent Maidan revolution make Kreshatik even more inspiring. Pedestrian over the weekend, beautiful for a walk, see some of the high end shops and at evening enjoy some concerts.

The transformation from the days of the revolution has been erased and a face lift is happening - just in time for Independence Day celebrations on August 24:)

This was interesting. Here is where you can find many shops and restaurants. I also saw many tents and remnants from the protests in the Maidan square. It's sort of eerie and I wouldn't go to the Maidan square at night.

Home to independence square or Maidan. Before the Euromaidan it was bustling place. The street was closed at weekends and many a tourist ventured there. Now it takes on a more thoughtful role as it has forever changed. The tents and barricades are still there but the atmosphere has changed to one of hope.

This street from the Maidain can start a road of shopping that extends through the city. There are many brand name stores and cafes that are popular to meet people. At night you can find the discos by just following the music. Lately, near the Maidain it has some military volunteers on it and some strange peoples from time to... More

A typical wide Soviet-styled Prospekt with amazing architecture on each side...with that said, Kiev abounds with amazing buildings. Khreshchatyk Street has many eateries and western style stores and galleries. The closer you get to Independence Square you start to run into the souvenier stands and curbside eateries. Personally I would like to see the full street return to normal and... More

Our review is based on our visit in October 2013. We (a couple) had a very good time sitting at one of the benches at this pretty street (at odd number side) surrounded by tall buildings built right after WWII. Even that these buildings are not New York's skyscrapers, their architecture style, size and greatness still wonder you. On this... More

In peace time, it is a lovely street which has a lot to offer with respect to shopping, enjoying good food at several restaurant outlets, and is especially beautiful at Christmas time. However, since November 2013, this street has been transferred to a political platform against the pro-Russian President who was routed out after a very bloody scene on this... More
