Kiev

Trip Planner Europe  /  Ukraine  /  Kiev
(4.4/5 based on 16,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, museums, historic sites
The center of East Slavic culture, Kiev boasts centuries of eclectic art, architecture, and history. Located along the Dnieper River, this city was originally settled in the 5th century and has survived a number of wars, from the times of the Mongol Empire to recent internal conflict. The Ukraine capital is well recognized for the gold domes of St. Sophia's cathedral--a World Heritage Site--as well as the 11th-century Kiev Pechersk Lavra, or cave monastery. Visitors come to view a collection of significant churches, museums, theaters, statues, and ruins. Kiev's personality can be attributed to its proud bilingual residents.
