I've just returned from a very successful city break to Moscow and am now considering going to Kiev in May next year for 4 nights. BMI have just started direct flights from heathrow to Kiev and with thier being no Visa requirements for EU nationals Kiev has suddenly become a potentially attractive citybreak destination.
Is there any sort of tourism infrastructure there i.e. Boat trips open top bus tours etc etc ? Have any of the restaurants English menus. I know a tiny bit of Russian but absolutely no Ukrainian whatsoever.
I'd be very interested in hearing of the experiences of Western travellers there as I have heard conflicting stories about Kiev but am keen to go nonetheless.
