The tour is devoted to the greatest feelings – love in a big city and love to it. These feelings inspire and add a new sense to life, help create masterpieces but sometimes make one do crazy things. We want to acquaint you with Kiev and reveal some of its secrets… and to do this in such a way that our guests fall in love with this wonderful city and would like to come back here over and over.
Arrival to Kyiv and meeting at the railway station. We invite to start acquaintance with the city from ‘Kyiv love stories’ tour. There were a lot of them during the centuries when ancient city exists. Start-up from Volodymyr cathedral with wall painting by Vrubel and Vasnetsov, who embodied in the icon of Our Lady the image of his beloved wife with a child. The tourists will see Museum of Eastern and Western art, Kyiv Opera House, St. Sofia Square, where St. Sofia Cathedral impresses with its splendor and refinement of Ukrainian baroque, St. Andrew's Church. Then the descent by may be the most romantic street of Kyiv - Andrew's Descent, to Podil (and ‘there is no Kyiv without Podil!’). A unique spirit reveals here, narrow streets of Podil hide a lot of interesting stories.
A special magic event waits for our guests at noon - workshop of pottery! Everyone who wants will have an opportunity to sit at the wheel and make something unique and exclusive as a remembrance.
A big city attracts great people and inspires them to outstanding deeds. A lot of well-known citizens of Kyiv left a significant mark in history and some of them even an ‘architecture’ mark at the appearance of the favorite city.
During the excursion ‘Extraordinary houses of unusual Kievites’ the brightest of them are waiting for guests. Right away next to the Golden gates the towers catch our eye, which look like taken from a medieval castle, this is the House of Knight. A real dragon has hidden over there on the building or this is Zmey Gorynych? One can see a fantastic gargoyle on the wall of one building behind the ‘House of Doctor’.
Next stop is Dytynetz where one day prince Volodymyr’s palaces were situated. And even some time before Volodymyr, as legend says, three brothers-founders of Kyiv - Kyi, Shchek and Khoryv -had settled here. After a little stop we have a trip to… the ‘fifth dimension’ where we can walk through the wall and look into peephole of Master’s door. Now here is the Museum of Mikhail Bulgakov where guests are always welcomed.
