Is it really made of gold? – the guests of my walking tours are asking me when looking at the golden domes of monastaries and cathedrals. “But why is this beautiful building in such a poor situation?” – the other most asked question. I am asking myself the same question: why?
You cannot come to Kyiv and leave this city without trying its metro. It is reliable, convenient and a little bit crazy…
Money talks. Especially in such expensive cities as Kyiv. Every coin counts, so here I will tell you the best ways to invest your 2 dollars (or even less).
– I feel like I am stuck here. And I cannot do anything about it, – that’s what this foreign guy living in Kyiv said to me.
– But “stuck” is probably not the best word to describe the way of life, is it? – I asked him.
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 is it safe to travel to Kyiv?
That’s not just the time…
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?
