Orientation
Kiev is the capital city of Ukraine, its largest economical, political, educational and cultural centre. Kiev is often called the mother of Slavic cities. It is more than fifteen centuries old and during this time Kiev has come a long way from its beginning as an ancient settlement of nomadic tribes to being one of the largest cities in the world. Kiev is integrally connected to Slavic cultural development. Its monuments, architectural ensembles and cathedrals charm with their beauty, harmony and historical meaningfulness. The sights and attractions of the Ukrainian capital are covered with the spirit of old glorious times.

Kiev is built on hills overlooking the Dnepr River, in the north central part of the country. Kiev has a great cultural potential. The most famous museums include the National Museum of History of Ukraine, the Museum of Ukrainian Fine Arts, the Museum of Western and Oriental Art.

There are plenty of parks and places of historical interest in Kiev. The newer part of the city, on the left bank of the river, was mostly built after World War II and is rather bland. Of more interest to the visitor is the older city on the right bank. The hills here are crowned with churches and the remains of ancient castles and fortifications.

Getting around
Buses, trolleybuses, trams and subway are as commonly used in Kiev as private cars. You can save a lot by travelling using public transport, as it´s the cheapest way to get around the city.
