This was one of our first stops in Kiev. It's quite out there from the city center but it's worth the walk. Not exciting per se but seeing the entire fortress covered in snow was a sight to behold. You have to pay a small...More

Somewhat interesting - not a lot to see. You only need a half an hour or so to see this place. Easy to get to.
