Amazing city, tons of history, beautiful architecture and off the beaten path.
Kyiv is well worth a visit, there is a lot to see and do.Its also superb value with very affordable hotels and restaurants. Public transport is very cheap but a big warning, there are loads of pickpockets operating!! Always keep your hand on your phone and purse/wallet. Better still zip them in an inside pocket. They operate as teams on the metro, as the train starts one will “fall” onto you, another will “catch” you. If this happens you are being robbed.Dont stand near the doors but move into the train, it’s much more difficult for them to operate there.Also you must visit the Opera house for a show or ballet. Book online before you go, it’s really very cheap with decent seats for less than £10 and they start at £1.60, and that’s for the superb Ukraine State Ballet. 3 A fantastic evening of entertainment for a quid, and the interior of the opera house is stunning as well. There is a bit of a free for all in the cloakroom after but just wait upstairs until the madness dies down
Amazing city, and country. The history is fascinating. Would definitely recommend this as a short break. Chernobyl is a must see tour
