Ancient City, the capital of Kievan Rus, the cradle of Slavic culture – Kiev will welcome tourists with thousand-year-old temples and monasteries, elegant European squares and, without a doubt, a seething stream of historical events. This is the place where statehood was forged and the pillars of the Russian Orthodox faith were established, where History continues its bizarre chronicle even now.
Kiev is constantly becoming a venue for various musical and sporting events of the European level. A lot of national festivals take place here, especially in the summer. It will be interesting for tourists to visit the Day of Embroidery, dedicated to the traditional costume, or to walk along Khreshchatyk on the City Day, merging with the relaxed crowd of cheerful Kievans.
