Hi Roldan,

This year we had a holiday of Pentecost on June 23, so that means June 22-24 were days off.

Plus, June 28 is the Constitution Day, that means June 28-30 were days off.

Many people arranged to have June 25-27 as days off as well and left the city for a week vacations.

Hi Roldan :)

Kyiv in general gets relatively deserted in summer, especially when school holidays begin and as vacationing season unwinds. The life and vibe move south and/or abroad.

And also, as Marynuk (Hi! :) has perfectly explained, on those particular days you ask about we enjoyed a series of extended public holidays. So even those of us who prefer to take vacations in a season other than summer could not miss the opportunity of a getaway :)
