Kyiv Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
The defining feature of Kyiv's skyline are the numerous gold-domed churches and monasteries. The main sight is the golden-domed St. Sophia Cathedral. Over 950 years old, this site includes a cathedral, a bell tower and the Metropolitan’s residence.
Along the right bank of the Dnipro you find the Pecherska Lavra Monastery. Other sights include the Cathedral of St. Volodymyr Vydubich Monastery and St. Andrew’s Church.
Kyiv has a distinct European atmosphere. Although the city was nearly completely destroyed by advancing German and then Soviet forces during World War II it was rebuilt with none of the charm lost. Aside from spectacular architectural delights there are many cultural things to do: good museums, good ballets, music and a lively night scene.
Nearby Babi Yar has a monument to remember the massacre of
more than 100 000 Ukrainian Jews and many others during World War II.
