This is the main shopping street and is well worth a visit to see what is hot and what is not in Kiev. I would say it is best to visit at the weekend when the street is closed to cars which makes it a much less polluted and enjoyable experience.

Khreshchatyk is the center of Kiev. On this road you could find lots of shops and also you can enjoy a great walk !

Khreshchatyk is pedestrial area weekends. It is a great place to visit whether with family, friends or alone. There are a lot of shopping places, restaurants, attractions and places to see on Khreshchatyk. Don't forget a camera because you will want to make many pictures that will get many likes afterwards.

It was Sunday when we visited and the street was closed to traffic which made it very comfortable. It was snowing and there was a nice feeling of Christmas. There are some good quality shops and plenty of eating and drinking options available

Khreshchatyk is the main street in Kiev for many things social and business. During the week it has a decidedly business feel and weekends are very social with a huge mix of people and activities. Though so many tourists go here, it's not a complete perspective on life in Kiev.

Although this street is considered the heart of Kiev it is the low point of the centre. Walk in any direction from here and things will improve quickly. Many people there to work the tourists. Very few shops worth seeing (there's only one I go to). There are so many better parts of Kiev. Don't waste more than 10 minutes... More

Kreshatik street has always been my favorite spot to shop, walk and eat. Do love the environment and the underground mall. I truly miss when the entire street was closed on the weekend so that people can enjoy their moments while walking along the street. The shows being held during the weekend was fun too. Definitely go back for a... More

Best time to visit here is at the weekend especially if it is dry plenty to do and see. Night Time is also interesting but I would suggest that you do not try alone if it is very late. Plenty to see especially if you like shopping.

This is a wide street with some history of Ukraine, but has been transformed over the past 20 years. There are the high end shops now and an underground mall at Maidan Square that has a fast food court. Part of the street is closed on weekends for pedestrians and makes a nice Sunday stroll from one end of the... More
