Kyiv Kyiv Kyiv
 
Kyiv is the ancient center of Slavic culture, the mother of all old Russian cities. The name Kyiv is said to derive from the name of Kyi, one of four legendary founders of the city – brothers Kyi, Shchek, Khoryv and sister Lybid. It is situated on the Dnepr River and boasts architectural monuments that are recognized world treasures. The city have been founded in the 5th century. During its history, Kyiv, one of the oldest cities in Europe, passed through several stages of great prominence and relative obscurity. Kyiv suffered severely during World War II, and many irreplaceable architectural and art treasures were destroyed. Earlier in the 1930's the Soviet authorities systematically destroyed many churches. Extensive restoration has revived much of historic Kyiv. The city hit the headlines in April 1986, when the nuclear reactor at nearby Chernobyl exploded, but scientists generally agree that the city is now safe from radiation effects.

The art and architecture of Kyiv are world treasures. The Cathedral of St. Sophia, where the princes of Kyiv were crowned in the years of Kyiv's grandeur, has outstanding mosaics and frescoes dating back to the 11th century. Overlooking the old section of Kyiv, Podol, stands the Ukrainian Baroque church of St. Andrew, much beloved by Ukrainians. The Percherska Lavra, the Monastery of the Caves, a short trolley ride from the center of town, has two 11th-century cathedrals on its grounds, in addition to its world-famous catacombs, bell tower, and museum collections. Close to the center of town stands the Golden Gate, a structure, which dates back to 1037. This recently reconstructed remains of the former fortified wall of the city defined the limits of the city in centuries past. Several blocks away, stands the magnificent 19th-century Cathedral of St. Volodymyr.

Nowadays Kiev is the largest cultural, scientific and industrial center of Ukraine, the place of religious pilgrimage and a very attractive tourist destination. Many famous artists, poets and writers estimated the unique beauty of this city. A Majestic City with Green Parks and romantic boulevards Kyiv is one of the most beautiful historical capitals of Eastern Europe.
