In Kiev, the united opposition – narrow and, as it were “deep” streets and spacious squares. Particularly impressive is such a contrast to the city center – where from the “canyon” between the houses suddenly come out into the open a huge area. At night sometimes creates the effect of “the light of the lake”, in which are immersed with every step on the area.
Therefore, if you rent an apartment, Kiev appear before you in its glory day and night – in fact you do not need to think about where you can leave things and spend the night.
And to admire Kiev area, go for a walk.
No, somehow I do not dare to call it as something different. The main square of the capital, in a remarkable way to link together such different countries. Beautiful area with fountains and elegant glass constructions, with trees and flowerbeds. She is good in itself. But now on it can not just run. Each step – a feeling of belonging to the country and history. Maybe it has something pompous – but that such sensations are from visiting her. It is impossible to tell about it – here it is necessary to come in and feel.
Perhaps the most ancient area of the Upper Town, which arose simultaneously with the construction of St. Sophia in the XI century. Now it is one of the most beautiful and popular areas of Kiev. Sama Sophia Cathedral, the elegant bell tower which, built in the Ukrainian Baroque style, as if to take off, the monument to Bogdan Khmelnitsky, full of power and movement, a huge expanse of the pedestrian part, chestnuts – all this creates a unique look of this area.
Initially, it is integral with the Sofia area, formed at the entrance to the St. Michael’s Monastery in the XII century. Geographically separated from the Sofia area during construction 1850s. After the restoration of the Monastery, it has also been reconstructed.
One of the oldest squares of Kiev – a settlement in its place dating back to IV century. The current name she got from being on her postal station – a station house, a monument of architecture, it is worth a closer look. And there it is possible from St. Michael’s Square, going down the famous Kiev funicular.
Another area, which is preserved from the times of Kievan Rus – Kontraktova. When the Mongol-Tatars destroyed the Upper City and the center of Kiev became a living hem, she became the central area of the city. Here was the center of business life, the merchants entered into trade deals – which is why it got its name, here were held the annual Contract Fair. It was built Gostiny Dvor and Contract House, memos, which are worth a closer look. It is also the well-fountain “Samson”. Getting here is simple, no matter where you had to rent a house in Kiev.
Of course, the space in the city is much larger, and they can not get around no one, nor two, nor for … hard to say how many visits to the city. So, arriving in Kiev at night, you’re renting an apartment to live in a comfortable environment and feel safe, and a day have the opportunity to explore the beauty and mysteries of one of the oldest cities in the world.
