This is mostly a new reconstruction of the storied Golden Gate of Kiev. It is well done and worth it just for the views.

I guess this is the best that can be offered as the original has long since gone, but this is a clear modern reconstruction. There are far more important and interesting things to see but you will probably pass by at some point - close...More

We couldn't visit Kyiv without visiting the famed "Zolotiy Vorota" Golden Gate. We had learned about it as part of Ukrainian history and its role in the defense of Ukraine's capital. One could just imagine sentinels manning the gate in anticipation of invaders who wanted...More

Seems out of place, as the reconstruction lacks reality and could have been done better. Can easily be skipped.

We wandered round to this monument but didn't go inside just looked from the pavement. It was ok but not as impressive as some.

A reconstruction and, in my personal opinion, with no ambition. The area around it is nice with lots of activities going on but it really failed to make an impression.

Nice to see, didn't actually go inside/up the gate. The area around is a hive of activity on Friday & Saturday nights. Nice area to wander and take it all in.
