Kiev's main city street. It stretches about 10 city blocks from the park (overlooking the Dnipro river) to Besa Rapska (an indoor market with lots of food products - expensive but very good produce, meat and fish----also black caviar if you ask the grandmothers in the middle). Lots of different shops along the way including Espirit and Zara but also... More

Khreshchatyk Street is a wonderful place to be, especially on the weekend when the street is closed to vehicle traffic. There are restaurants and shops of all types up and down (and under!) Khreshchatyk. The city of Kiev, even now during the country's most challenging times, is safe and day to day life carries on as normal. Use common sense... More

I have been here many times. I have been here at some time for almost every month of the year! Great street for shopping and restaurants. Fun in the spring, summer and fall when all the people are out and about. Most of the time, the street is blocked off from Independence Square for about 8 or 10 blocks from... More

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 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
