  • Hello visit of the most important Muslim place of Kiev. There's first and middle school that world school, they say. It also gives the driver currently in training. Girls and boys. Be any different if you call music.

  • In my case it is a romantic place with times of students. On the street. Olegovskoj, which with upper/lower shaft should climb to the mosque, my friends lived. The mosque itself is a beautiful modern solar building. To the left of the mosque is an ancient Muslim cemetery. Very educational, I love there wander. This is a layer of history of Kiev. If you go through the cemetery, you can go to the scenic hills, offering spectacular views of the Hem and the left bank.

  • The whole building is beautiful. But if you are not a Muslim, I do not recommend to approach close, otherwise you will begin to persuade to come inside, and very strongly. Get there very uncomfortable, it is not worth
