The history of Kiev is invariably kept in the cozy courtyards of the capital. The proposed walk is a visit to the most prominent of them, who remember the events of 900 years ago, keep the memories of the recent past and become eyewitnesses of the new history. Individual excursion for 1-10 people Duration 3.5 hours Children Allowed with children How it goes On foot € 9 per person
Courtyards in Kiev are special: they hide real palaces, where until recently life sounded, and now desolation is thundering; they represent a whole system of labyrinths, which you can easily move around without going out to the streets and boulevards; behind the arches and passages are real monuments of a bygone era, mosaic panels and statues of Russian emperors.
The promenade through the Kiev courtyards is a wonderful opportunity to visit places where tourists usually do not drop in and are not taken by guides; this is a chance to make an ordinary walk through the city center bright, colorful and unforgettable, and the route that I offer you serves as a guarantee of this!
During the walk you will see:
- a 12th century monastery hidden in the courtyard;
- the most unknown old church in Kiev, which survived after the October Revolution;
- the courtyard of false facades and trompe l'oeil houses;
- Kiev courtyards-wells;
- courtyard with mosaics and monuments;
- Kiev Danko and the Ukrainian Madonna;
- new unexpected panoramic points.
Who is the excursion for?
The walk is ideal for those who want to see much more than guidebooks and sightseeing tours offer, to feel the life of the City, its rhythm and atmosphere, hidden from idle onlookers by arches and gates in passages and gateways.
Meeting point by agreement with the guide, you can discuss it when ordering the excursion.
