“A street full of surprises”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

This is the main street in Kiev. Firstly it has stunning architecture and Stalins influence is very obvious. Buildings are massive but very impressive. The street is very busy and it is a great place to sit and people watch. There are loads of locals with fancy pigeons walking about for you to get your photo taken with them (a minor irritation only). At night the street vendor appear and you can buy lots of cheap souvenirs. Above ground all the major branded shops are there (although I could buy the same in London up to 50% cheaper) Under the street there is a warren of subways with lots of stalls selling everything including food. At weekend the street is closed to traffic so it comes alive especially at night. One warning - Use the subways, the street is very wide and traffic drives at breakneck speed - so be careful. Subways are everywhere, use them.

“Entertaining if you like people-watching”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2013

The street is closed to traffic on the weekends, and performers and vendors come out in full force. The people watching is fun, but the stores aren't anything special. There's also cooler architecture in other parts of the city.

“The main promenade in downtown Kiev!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

On weekends they close the street and it turns into a street fair of sorts, a see and be seen spot with food vendors, beer stands and coffee carts, street hawkers and artists...everybody has a good time and the mood is always upbeat!

“Shopping , coffe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

The buildings ar huge, maybe not very impressive and a little bit scary, because it reminds Stalins time...But it is still cozy, very lively. You can go shopping there, you can drink coffe, sit on the bench and just watch other people passing through
