Visit the most popular sightseeing of Kiev when dating
As we mentioned already and as you could probably find out with the help of Google, Kiev is teeming with sightseeing, monuments, old churches, monasteries, museums, and everything else telling you the history of this city and of Ukraine I general. We know that you won’t be able to see them all during one of your trips. But we want to tell you about must-see places!
Frankly speaking, Ukrainians living in other cities of the country also come to visit Kiev often and do not manage to see all the interesting places at once. So they keep coming and exploring the city again and again. So here you have the list of the most popular and most interesting sightseeing places to see during your first visit to Kiev!
The Great Gates of Kiev – Our Number 1 in your Must-See list!
In Ukraine, this monument and sightseeing is called The Golden Gate. This is a real face of Kiev history taking you to the roots of Ukrainian history.
When in Kiev, you should definitely see it. So ask your Ukrainian girlfriend to take you to that place full of history and Ukrainian spirit!
This gateway is one of the three created by Yaroslav the Wise. It was created at the beginning of the 11th century. By the way, the St. Sofia’s Cathedral was erected nearly at the same time. The Golden Gate was one of the three main entrances to Kiev. And it is the only of them that survived.
You may think that there is nothing to see in that sightseeing, just not a big wooden building. But the most interesting thing is that it is located in the old part of Kiev and is surrounded by amazing old squares, parks, and other beautiful places. So take the hand of your Ukraine girlfriend and have a romantic walk around.
1. Visit Mother Homeland Monument – A Legendary 335ft Statue
One of our customers came to Kiev last year and saw this statue when having a taxi ride from his hotel to the place of his date. The next day, he called the taxi and asked to take him to that place. When coming to the monument, he was absolutely amazed by its size and beauty. Even Ukrainian winter didn’t scare him; he took tens of pictures and spent there a couple of hours.
This titanium statue commemorates the Victory of the USSR in the war against Nazism in 1941-1945. A big titanium woman holds a 52ft sword. By the way, there is the Museum of the Great Patriotic War nearby so you can attend to places at a time. A similar statue is in Russia, Volgograd city.
2. Be amazed at the Museum of Miniatures
This museum is worth seeing. And it would be a great place to have a date with your Ukrainian woman. If you have ever dreamt of seeing the world’s smallest book or a golden set of chest on a pinhead (we bet you have not even thought of it), then you should definitely visit this museum. A great bonus is that it is situated on the territory of Kiev Pechersk Lavra.
Kiev Pechersk Lavra is Eastern Orthodox Cave Monastery inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. So you can visit it as well. There are lots of wonderful ancient churches and monasteries on the territory.
The museum exhibition is really mind-blowing. In a microscope, you can see a rose in a hair, mock windmill on half of the poppy seed, and even a golden caravan of camels in needle’s eye!
3. Hang out at Sculpture’s Alley
If your Ukrainian girlfriend is from Kiev, you can be sure she will take you there. But if not, you can just ask her to do that. This alley is the kindest place of Kiev. You surely won’t pass it without a smile, while it is a great place for having a date.
You will see lots of romantic couples here. It was built in the 1980’s but in 2009, it started to grow with contemporary art sculptures. You can easily find it when walking from St. Andrew’s Descent towards Kiev Museum of History. This place is also one of the most romantic places in all Ukraine.
It is also very cute and loved by Ukrainian children. It’s no wonder while the sculptures include the characters from Alice in Wonderland book. Apart from them, there are lots of other amazing sculptures in the alley. You will be impressed!
4. Pray at St. Sophia’s Cathedral
This place is also worth seeing! This place is dating back to the glorious times of Kievan Rus. This outstanding architectural landmark is one of the most-visited places in Kiev. This cathedral is very beautiful, calm, and serene.
It is represented by mosaics of the 11th century. You will be simply captivated by the spirit of that place. The most ancient history is presented by that building. You will feel the history in every stone of it.
You will be able to see the paintings over 1000 years old. They decorate an amazing interior of the cathedral. Although the place is now more a museum for visitors than a cathedral, it is really worth seeing it. We are sure your Ukrainian girlfriend will take you there.
5. Go the museum of one street and buy local souvenirs at Andreevsky descent
They say it is small in size but very deep in substance. It will be one of your favorite things to do in Kiev! Andreevsky descent (or Andriyivsky Uzviz in Ukrainian) is one of the Kiev’s most famous streets. It is a small down-hill street connecting the Upper Kiev and Podil, the more commercial district.
This street is full of historical landmarks, including baroque St.Andrew’s Church and the Castle of Richard the Lionheart. Here you can even take a master class of Ukrainian crafts, while there are plenty of various souvenirs and handy crafts sold there. If you come here in a warm time of the year, you surely have to take your girlfriend from Ukraine and walk this amazing and beautiful street.
