LOCAL ESSENTIALS

THE PERFECT DAY

MORNING

Wake up to the amazing glow of the golden domes of the city's numerous Cathedrals reflecting the sunlight against an azure sky. Start your perfect morning in a quiet city cafe. The fresh baked goods, coffee aroma and friendly relaxing atmosphere will awake your desire to explore the city. Take a walk to one of the oldest parts of Kiev, Lypki, and admire the outstanding architecture of the House with Chimeras, the most interesting tenement in Kiev. The facade is decorated with the statues of exotic animals and plants, dolphins and sea nymphs.

AFTERNOON

As you continue your exploration of the city, you will pass one of the greenest spots in Kiev – Mariinskiy Park, the grounds of the Mariinskiy Palace. Walk through shady alleys, take a picture of the ancient fountain in the middle of the park and visit the Palace – originally built for the Royal family and now used for special government receptions.

EVENING

A wonderful way to finish your Kiev day is to have the Concierge team arrange tickets to the National Opera. It is not only one of the oldest but also the most beautiful in Europe, having won a World Architecture Award. There is no doubt that you will enjoy an outstanding performance. On your way back to the hotel, listen to the beautiful music coming from the bell tower of the Mikhailovsky cathedral.
