Khreshchatyk Street, Kiev
(4.2/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Lined with Stalinist buildings and a host of shops, Khreshchatyk Street serves as Kiev's main thoroughfare and connects several of its primary squares. As you make your way down the 1.2 km (0.75 mi) road from European Square to Bessarabska Square, you'll pass the many centers of Kiev's city administration. Note the uniform Soviet-style architecture that defines the road, a result of its total destruction during World War II. A wide array of stores and boutiques lines the street, boasting plenty of big-name world brands. You can alternatively peruse the booths and markets set up along the way, or just kick back at a cafe. Make Khreshchatyk Street a part of your Kiev vacation plans using our Kiev itinerary maker.

  • This is one of the main streets in Kyiv, dual carriageway and large imposing Soviet style buildings on either side. It's probably better viewed while driving along in a car as the buildings are so big...  more »
  • The most important and the most famous street in Kiev. Lots of pubs, bars and restaurants. You can walk to the Maidan.

  • Very beautiful long avenue of splendid stately buildings. At night, lights enhance the architecture... Very nice ballad.
