  • Last year the Park was reconstructed. Now you can visit and in the dark. Clean, nicely. But do not forget about the historical importance of this place.

  • Babyn Yar is moving and a compelling story....a lot of history and a reminder of the inhumanity of mankind. This tour is a must see in Kiev  more »
  • A place of pain, for many inhabitants of the city. Fascists here more than 100 thousands of civilians and prisoners of war, mostly Jews. The complex consists of a park on a territory of which there are several monuments. Also there is an Orthodox Church.
