Stayed nearby and walked through this area frequently. It’s a fantastic place, always buzzing. Food, shops everything. Not to mention the stunning architecture. Grab a coffee and sit with the pigeons - watch the day go by

Maidan Square has got it all: Kiev's central Square, where people of all kind gather, nice shops and restaurants, shopping centers and, more important, the center of the Orange revolution in 2014, where the Police shot more than 100 revolutionaries and President Janokovitj was ousted.

It used to be a popular landmark, but not anymore. This place has been filled with hatred, struggle, deaths of innocents and bad energy. Place is definitely not for leisure anymore.
