5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

The heart of Kiew is here.My hotel was on the Square the name is something with K it is a big building in soviet stile,very nice.The shopping Mall Globus is underneath .There is McDonald's
and all what you need. The main street, even that starts with a K (can never remember these Ukrainian names, I just look at them) runs right here and at the end there is the market of Bessa something

“Just a square”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

As a local I'd like to give it 5 stars but I can't))
It's really just a squre in the very center of Kiev.
Frankly speaking I don't like it a all for it's messy collection of monuments.

But it's a city center and you will visit anyway because it's on the way to other attractions like Kreshchatik, Cathedrals etc.

You can also buy souvenirs there.
There's also Central Post Office in Maidan Nezalezhnosti, so if you need call smb or send a letter or check your email you can do it there

“Bleh Location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

The square isn't anything impressive. Mostly drab buildings with an old Soviet era hotel at one end and a very busy McDonalds at the other end,Lots of crowds and a concert going on here when we were there but nothing really notable.

“just a square”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Just a square with crowds of people. Beautiful enough, but not something outstanding - include it to the Kreschatik walk, but don't expect much.
