Kiev Travel Guide

Unlike many of the other Soviet cities, Kiev has retained much of the identity that made it special before the many years of rule from Moscow. For sure it has the plethora of Stalinist architecture and utilitarian landscaping, the statues that celebrate the struggle of the workers, and the museums and concert halls designed to let the citizens enjoy the spoils of the wealthy, but Kiev also has heart. Nowhere else can you find people as warm and welcoming as in Kiev, and nowhere else will you be treated with such courtesy as you are in the streets and bars of Kiev.
