Main Street in Kyiv, passing the Maidan square and the street is filled with bars, restaurants, cafés, shops, museum etc. In short, the street where everything happen. On top there is also a lot of different artists and performers in the street, especially on weekends when the street is closed for traffic. The boulevard itself is broad and remains a... More

Wow! This is one of the most lively streets I have walked down. Many street musicians (including a Ukrainian man dressed as a Mexican singing Hispanic music), dancers, guitarists, violinists, trained monkeys and birds, and even gold and silver "statue folks" that will catch your eye and tempt you to catch a selfie with them - for a fee, I'm...

The shortest main street in Europe. Very wide with many small and big sculptures. One visit will be enough.

Wide boulevard with many shops, restaurants and a very good vibe. It is a very busy street and also loads of stuff going on, street artists, performers, etc. It's the main drag so everyone visiting Kiev with undoubtedly spend time here and hopefully enjoy the atmosphere and character of the street. Eurovision was setting up a fan zone when we... More

Nice avenue but nothing that special. There are some nice cafes where you can sit down and enjoy an afternoon beer. If you are lucky enough, you can listen to a street band playing music.

I enjoyed my time there. It's a perfect place for a promenade or going out with friends.The street has been reconstructed but did not lose its old aspect at all. Not my thing, but it can also be a perfect place for shopping lovers

A lot of people, locals and tourists. Been there on eurovision week - a big part of the street was closed for veichels. A lot of street shows. At night a lot of lights. A lot of security. Dancing fountains at Maiden.
