We begin our walk from Square of Contracts - one of the oldest in Kiev, which arose in the days of Kyiv Rus. Not far from the square you can see the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy and a monument to Grigory Skovoroda.
From Square of Contracts, you can quickly get to the second most popular street in Kiev after Khreshchatyk - Andriyivskyy Descent. A street filled with real Kyiv flavor is popularly called a museum street, the main decoration of which is St. Andrew's Church.
 
St. Andrew's Church is a temple, which is an architectural monument, and inside reflects the real treasures of monumental painting, built in the 18th century by the famous architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli.
It is impossible to imagine Kiev without one more shrine - St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery. It is interesting that the walls of the temple are still remembered by the grandson of King Yaroslav the Wise - Svyatopolk, and amazing murals and mosaics daily delight the eyes and soul of hundreds of visitors.
 
The central square of Kiev and without exaggeration, its heart is the Maidan Nezalezhnosti. The square is located at the intersection of a number of streets, among which the most famous is Khreshchatyk. Seeing the beauty and grandeur of Khreshchatyk, it’s hard to imagine that in the 10th century there was dirt everywhere, as we see, over time everything changed for the better.
Walking along Khreshchatyk, you will certainly see the Peoples' Friendship Arch. The arch unites 2 sculptural groups symbolizing the unity of fraternal peoples, and behind it there are picturesque views of the Dnieper and the left bank of Kiev.
 
In order to better understand global and local environmental problems, we will definitely visit the Water Museum. The museum, or as it is also called the water-information center, is located on one of the hills of Kiev in the buildings of the reconstructed water towers of the 19th century.
The house where the sessions of the Ukrainian parliament are held - The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine is also an interesting story. And for its light color and attraction to the natural landscape, it is called the example of "Ukrainian architectural classics."
 
The amazing palace and park ensemble of the Mariinsky Palace is one of the architectural highlights of Kiev. It is known that it was hosted by empress Catherine II, and today the Mariinsky Palace is the place where the President of Ukraine holds official diplomatic receptions.
Each Ukrainian city has monuments dedicated to the Second World War. For Kyiv, this is the Memorial of Eternal Glory. The memorial consists of an obelisk and the Alley of fallen heroes, where 34 graves of soldiers who died during the Second World War.
 
The National Museum of the Holodomor-Genocide is a place where every visitor can learn more about the bitter pages of the Ukrainian people. The museum consists of a memorial part, which includes the famous “Candle of Remembrance” and the Halls of Remembrance, which actually serves as a museum.
Kiev-Pechersk Lavra is one of the largest Christian centers and shrines of the country. Founded as early as 1051 as a cave monastery outside of Kiev, it was a real center of Orthodoxy in Kiev Rus. And today, thousands of pilgrims come to Lavra to gain spiritual strength and enjoy the beauty of temples, not only from all over Ukraine, but also from abroad.
 
The monument "Motherland" is very difficult not to notice, because it is the highest monumental sculpture in Europe. A sculpture is located on the high right bank of the Dnieper in the territory of the National Museum of the History of Ukraine in World War II. Behind the monument, a view of the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra opens. It is this amazing combination of the Dnieper, Lavra and sculpture that has long been the hallmark of Kyiv.
