    Mariyinsky Palace in Kiev is a picturesque Baroque palace on the hilly bank of the Dnieper River. The palace is the official ceremonial residence of the President of Ukraine and adjoins the neo-classical building of the Verkhovna Rada (parliament) of Ukraine.

  • 3. Andriyvsky descent

    At the very top of Andriyivsky Descent you will see St. Andrew's Cathedral. From the Cathedral a steep Andriyivsky Descent runs down to Podil. The street has some special spirit. It lined with galleries, antiques stores and artist studios in late 19th-century brick buildings. The street is usually crowded. Especially on weekends.

    From the early morning numerous artists hang their pictures, sculptures, souvenirs on the walls, arrange them on the shelves or just on the lawns. You can watch improvised performances given by actors, musicians, poets or other people posing for artists. Certainly there are a lot of talented people over there.

    Halfway down the street is the house where a Russian novelist and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov grew up. It is now the Mikhail Bulgakov museum. Bulgakov's best known novels are "The Master and Margarita", "The White Guard", "Heart of a Dog"
