Golden Gate, Kiev

(3.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Although no one passes through it any more, Golden Gate stands as the remaining historical gateway to an ancient fortress, representing one of the main landmarks of the city. Dating back to 1017, the 12 m (39 ft) tall structure served as an honorary entrance for the wealthy, city politicians, and ambassadors from abroad. Although severely damaged in Mongol attacks of 1240, the gate represented the city's gala entrance until the mid-18th century. Most of the ruined part was excavated in 1832 and reattached. Pay particular attention to the top of the monument--it houses the Church of the Annunciation. If you wish, you can visit the national museum within the gate.

  • Raised at every outdoor balcony up to 3rd floor. The price no longer remember, but she was quite funny. Inside you can get acquainted with the history of Kiev in General and to the history of the Golden Gate in particular. I go here all my life and inside first visited recently. And not disappointed)

  • One of the older pubs in Kiev. Good place to watch a game on a Sunday and grab a bite. Try: sandwich with grilled beef.
  • Lately was impressed that price policy has been changed to a more acceptable one. Quality and service are great
  • Went for fish and chips. Good service, but fish was less than average. Batter was like rubber.
  • One of the best places to watch football in Kiev
  • Cozy place
