The beautiful city of Kiev or Kyiv, also known as the City of Golden Domes, is the capital of Ukraine. The nickname comes from the abundance of historical architectural structures and churches like Saint Andrew’s Church, Saint Sophia’s Cathedral and Pechersk Lavra cave monastery; the latter two attractions are UNESCO World Heritage sites known for having invaluable artworks, frescoes, and mosaics. It is tradition for females to cover their heads and wear skirts when going into churches so make sure to at least bring scarves to use as makeshift skirt or head cover.
Apart from historical attractions and museums, Kiev offers many appealing activities like going to the many Opera houses and ballet theatre for performance art lovers; Jurassic Dream Island Park and Landscape Alley for family vacation fun; huge malls and centuries old markets selling vodka, crafts and souvenirs for shopping enthusiasts; taking in the glorious scenery of the many lovely parks especially in the spring time; enjoying Kiev’s ever so vibrant nightlife at numerous world class casinos, nightclubs, and bars for hedonists; countless sumptuous and time-honored cafes and restaurants to dine at for gourmands; and simply getting to know the hospitable and welcoming Kiev locals.
Cold months in Kiev can get chilly with temperature going as low as -4ºF but the wintertime snow covered city has an enigmatic glow; just remember to bring warm clothing if visiting from October to March. The warmer months of April to September are most ideal for touring in Kiev; with a highest probable temperature of 100 ºF in July.
Here’s a final tip – get a Russian or Ukrainian pocket dictionary or phrasebook and learn a few thing about the Cyrillic Alphabet to make it easier for you to get around Kiev.
