Kyiv (population 2.8 million) is Ukraine’s biggest and one of the oldest cities, founded around the 5th century CE. Once capital of the powerful medieval kingdom known as Kievan Rus’ and later under the rule of Lithuanian and Polish kingdoms as well as the Russian Empire and Soviet Union, Kyiv preserves the traces of the all these cultural strata.
Beside its famous golden-domed cathedrals and vast green spaces that still define the city’s landscape, Kyiv also boasts an impressive heritage of the Soviet neoclassical and modernist architecture, including the breathtaking industrial sceneries scattered along the riverside.
Moreover, in the recent years following the Euromaidan revolution, Kyiv has been blooming with grassroots cultural initiatives, and the local raves have made the headlines of most European media.
