Kyiv is the capital of Ukraine and one of the oldest cities in Europe, founded at least 1500 years ago. A modern European city is able to surprise anyone - from those who appreciate natural beauty, architecture, and attractions to those who prefer a more intense and active recreation.

Kyiv is built on the picturesque slopes of the Dnieper River, which gives the opportunity to admire the unique panorama of the metropolis.

Next to a large number of modern skyscrapers, shopping, entertainment, and business centers you will find interesting historical buildings, monuments of art and architecture, quiet narrow streets with their history and unique charm. There are many green squares, parks, fountains, museums, universities, temples, theaters, cafes, restaurants and clubs for every taste.

Like every capital, Kyiv lives an eventful life - it develops, reconstructs, becomes better, but one thing remains unchanged - the desire to explore this city and to open it again each time.
