Sightseeing

You will find below all the attractive places you can't miss if you travel to Kiev. Obviously there is the famous Maydan square where you can enjoy the symbolic female winged statue which represents the independence of the country. Not far from this monument, you can stay religious elaborated architecture buildings such as the Kyivo-Pecherska Lavra, the Saint Sophia's Cathedral, the Saint Michael's Monastery, the Saint Andrew's Church and the Saint Volodymyr's Cathedral. The interesting common point about these three buildings is their huge golden crosses on the cupolas and that is why you will see it by far.
You can also enjoy sights like the National Opera house, the Museum of the Great Patriotic War which is under the high Motherland's statue. But basically, you can just walk through the city to see how beautiful the streets are and the villages surrounding.

Kiev by night will give you all the reasons to like this lively city. Many pubs and discotheques will reveal if you a party-goer like never before ! Let's see together what are the good spots to have crazies nights. For the ones who really want to dance all the night long after sharing the tastiest cocktail with good looking girls, come in Faberge, Decadence House or Arena, the most popular club of the town. Sometimes, parties are organized in the Privilege with open-air spaces, so for a while you will think you are in Ibiza. For the ones who'd rather spend their night by drinking delicious beers, you will be glad to know there are lots of Irish pubs and taverns.
