Photos - Kiev

In 2006 Comtourist toured the former Soviet Republic Ukraine after a couple of days in Minsk. We started in Kiev were we visited many of Kiev’s famous landmarks like the many monasteries, Independence Square, the former Lenin Museum, Rodina Mat with the giant motherland statue and the Museum of the Great Patriotic War.

We investigated the option for a day trip to Chernobyl during our preparation but decided not to go, after friendly advice from family and friends. Our hotel was close to Hydropark, an island in the Dnieper River with beaches, bars restaurants and clubs. Hydropark is a great place to cool down after a day of walking around in Kiev and that was exactly what we did. Kiev is a great place for a city trip, offering a lot of Soviet heritage, culture, history, nightlife, leisure, shopping and much more.
