  • The strange symbol of friendship between nations which are currently at the state of war de facto dates back to the Soviet Union. Though the Podil city and Dnieper river view is nice.  more »
  • Great place close to Maidan Square and just in the end of the main shopping street. The view over the city and the river Dnepr is great, and despite a small amusement park situated just beside the arc...  more »
  • Big arch that is visible from the main square. At first glance it looks like a giant rainbow and it would have been excellent if it had been designed in this way. Unfortunately it wasn't and there are...  more »

  • Kinda odd statue, It is called "Friendship of nations" (between Ukraine and Russia), but currently this is no friendship at all. There is a small fun-fair at the place, but feels like post-socialist fun-fairs, but the view is good. Nothing special.
  • A Russian-Ukrainian friendship memorial. Funny, right? It's been recently decorated as a rainbow. There is a view point and sometimes there are cultural events. Last time the French Spring festival brought there a live performance of a dancer dancing with a machine.
  • It has recently been decorated as part of Kyiv hosting the Eurovision contest. Sadly, because of the lack of open minds, it isn't likely that the colour will be finished. (Even though the slogan for the contest this year is 'celebrating diversity.)
  • This place supposed to offer good view on the River and Podil (old district). Views are there, but some moments could be disappointing. As there are chip tents which sell alcohol also lots of young people come here with their own bottles
  • Too much USSR. Looks old-fashion, but there is a cool view on Kyiv near the arch.

Where to stay in Kiev

To stay in the thick of things, book a room in the heart of Kiev, where hotels range from mid-range to five-star and offer free Wi-Fi, indoor swimming pools, and modern spa and fitness facilities. This part of town also keeps you close to the metro and the central train station, providing quick links to the surrounding region. For something a bit more budget-friendly, consider the city's hostels, many of which organize evening activities like movie nights and bar tours.
