“Great place to see a lot of artistic spirit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Be sure to visit it on Saturday, Sunday or other holiday. There are a lot of paintings and other pieces of art. Be sure to bargain and ask for some documents to present to customs, if it is a notable piece of art. The document does not cost a lot but will help you at the border.

“Andriivski Uzviz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

My favorite market in Kiev. Very European feeling with the cobblestones and winding path. I loved coming on weekends, shopping for pysanky and vintage Soviet cameras! There is a lot of kitsch for sale too, you just need to take the time to spot the treasures. Visited Spring 2008.

“An obligation for every visitor to Kiev”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Been there many times; always an interesting walk .... lots of artists & crafts to see ..... BUT, of a VERY high quality.
There's also some very cool, very tasty, affordable restaurants on the same street.

“not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This is one of Kyiv's landmarks.
Nice architecture from 19th century. Main destination for souvenirs purchase.
The best way is to go from Andriivska church down to Podil and Kontraktova square.

“A fun way to walk downhill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

This is one of the oldest streets in Kyiv. The best way to approach this to take the funicular up from Kontractova Ploscha, then spend sometime on the hill where Andriyivska church is located, and then leisurely walk down the hill and shop and/or just look at all the neat souvenirs and sites on the street. We immensely enjoyed looking at historic homes including that of Mikhail Bulgakov and shopping. The souvenir prices are about the worst in the entire city, but some of the items are unique and cannot be found anywhere else. Bring a local friend and have him/her do the bargaining for you.
