4 years ago I went to the open market in Kyiv to buy spray to kill cockroaches. While I was choosing the most effective one, somebody sneaked in my pocket and stole my phone. It was my first stolen phone (and hopefully the last one). The end was really disappointing: I did not find something to get rid of those bastards (neither cockroaches nor thieves).
So you already bought your tickets to Kyiv? Ah man, return them. I have bad news for you: there is nothing to do here. And I will clearly explain why.
When you wake up in the morning, look out of the window and see that…that you see nothing, because there is such a thick fog, then visiting a botanical garden can be a good idea. That’s what I did today, and, to be honest, I did not really want to come back to civilization after I got lost in the magical forest. But I had to…to share this magic with you.
That’s not just the time…
One bad man (a.k.a. former president Yanukovych) once said: “If you want to turn on Ukraine, you should see it when the chestnuts are flowering in Kyiv. When it gets warm and women in Ukrainian cities take off their clothes, you will see the real beauty”
But apart from this main reason, why to come to Kyiv in May?
One of the reasons why May is the best month to visit Kyiv is chestnuts flowering everywhere. How did this awesome tree become the symbol of the city?
“Kyiv is impossible without Podil” – that’s the words from a popular song about Kyiv. Ask locals where the heart of the Kyiv is and most of them will mention Podil. Take a photojourney to one of the most enthralling districts of the city.
