3 Essential Places to Visit in Kiev

Celebrating the premiere of Heart to Heart, a Ukrainian romantic drama set in Kyiv about a girl living a perfect life whose paradise suddenly ends because of an unknown child, we have selected three places you must see when going there!

Saint Sophia’s Cathedral

Saint Sophia’s Cathedral is an outstanding complex; work started on it in 1037 and lasted for just three years. As the architectural monument has had only a few reconstructions, you can marvel at the Byzantine cathedral in close to its original form. In addition, as it is located at the intersection of the four leading roads in Kyiv, climb to the cathedral’s bell tower and you’ll be rewarded with a magnificent view from the top.

Mikhail Bulgakov Museum

The literary and memorial museum is devoted to the famous writer Mikhail Bulgakov, who was born in Kyiv. From 1906 to 1919, he lived in this house while writing his book The White Guard. Bulgakov included the building and land next to it and the internal layout of the house is exactly the same as described in his novel.

National Art Museum of Ukraine

The exposition of the National Art Museum of Ukraine includes masterpieces of Ukrainian paintings and sculpture, dating back to the times of Kievan Rus (the federation of East Slavic tribes from the 9th to 13th centuries). The museum currently has about 40,000 exhibits and has one of the richest collections of ancient iconostases in Ukraine.
