No matter what, you will pass the Maidan at some point when residing in Kyiv. It is very impressive and big (and beautiful, for that matter). In order to snap some nice pix, try to go there early AM, you will then have it almost...More

When in Ukraine you will definitely visit Khreschatyk street, and this place is not to be missed. Nice view from over the building.

As my title says if you are around it is worth going to. We learned about the 2014 revolution and saw the names and pictures of the fallen. The only bad thing about the square is there are loads of hussalers trying to take your...More
