Central Kiev



The art and architecture of Kiev are world treasures. The Cathedral of St. Sophia, where the princes of Kiev were crowned in the years of Kiev's grandeur, has outstanding mosaics and frescoes dating back to the 11th century. Overlooking the old section of Kiev, Podol, stands the Ukrainian Baroque church of St. Andrew, much beloved by Ukrainians. The Percherska Lavra, the Monastery of the Caves, a short trolley-bus ride from the centre of town, has two 11th-century cathedrals on its grounds, in addition to its world-famous catacombs, bell tower, and museum collections. Close to the centre of town stands the Golden Gate, a structure, which dates back to 1037. The city centre is a mixture of old and new located on the right bank of the Dnipro River. The main street, Khreshchatik, runs between two steep hills. Running parallel to this about half a kilometre west, is vulytsya Volodymyrska, the main street of the Old Kiev area (Stary Kiev). From the north end of Khreshchatik, vulytsya Hrushevskoho rises southeast along a ridge to the Caves Monastery at Perchersk. Woods and parks cover most of the steep right-bank slopes. The capital's newer sections stretch out on the flat left bank. These are characterized by large housing developments and industrialized neighbourhoods.
