Hi EastofEngland :)

According to google maps, approx 3.2km http://goo.gl/maps/EN22T

But as I mentioned before, you would hardly want to climb up the very steep Hrushevskogo Street. Better use any transport going uphill from European Square.

My current idea is to get Taxi there & then take slow walk back via the Holodomor Memorial & the Park, will the hills be downward sloping doing this?

Lavra to Holodomor memorial is a very short (2min) walk along a totally flat street – no problem at all.

Then a longer one but flat again to Mariinski park and palace. And then you have Hrushevskogo street running downhill to European Square.

But then again (as I mentioned several times before ;) to get to Kostyolna, you will either have to climb a very steep Tryohsvyatitelska Street, or to make a bypass from European Square along Khreshchatyk to Maidan and walk up less steep Kostyolna.

Cora, thanks, one of my problems at the moment is that I am working with very small maps with many road names missing.

Hope to get good map when I arrive at airport/hotel

Cora, I know you are trying very hard but I find it hard to plan routes etc with online maps.

Think it best if I just pick up a hard copy map in hotel.
