Andrew's Descent is a really cool spot in Kiev packed full of nice eateries and quirky souvenir shops. It's a very picturesque pedestrian street just up from the central square. Crowned by a magnificent cathederal it is a great place to hang out if in Kiev. Nice vibe here with a great mix of tourists and locals.

DO NOT get souvenirs here as they are ridiculously overpriced. However, if you're coming from $ based countries, the priced won't scare you off that much. It's good if you have a local with you to ask for the price & negotiate b/c when the vendors hear English or even have a sense that you are a foreigner, they will... More

I first noticed the cathedral whilst walking through the park which leads off into the History musuem grounds, which is where you can see the Cathedral. You have to go down some stairs to street level them climb up separate stairs to the church grounds. Go there! It's beautiful and the area is great for street stalls and food.

This might be my most favorite orthodox church in Kiev. it is located right next to St. Andrews descent, where you can find tons of souvenirs and interesting stuff. The church itself is magnificent from the outside and quite interesting from the inside. Entry is free.

Part of this is under construction but it's still amazing. There are lots of markets and galleries in the surrounding area. It sits up a steep hill but worth the climb there. Such beautiful architecture indeed.

This is an excellent location to see the crafts and artisans of Ukraine. Being able to speak Russian or Ukrainian helps with the haggling when bargaining with the merchants. The authentic crafts are custom made and unique. There are some other things thrown into the items being sold. Check out the products very carefully. There is a lot of fun... More

Do not miss this fantastic walk when you are in Kyiv! With any type of weather you will enjoy this lovely and sinuous descent into historic neighborhood of Podil...I especially love the stands with painters and salesmen of antiquities..
