About Kyiv Guide

Jason & Yuliya visiting Mamayeva Sloboda

Fed up with the lack of and outdated number of resources about Kyiv in the English language, we decided to create our own web site with all the very best attractions and things to do in Kyiv. We have personally visited and verified every place we post on the site so you can be sure they are what we say they are and of they are worth the trip to get there.

I first visited Ukraine in 2011 to Lviv & Rivne during the winter season. It was the coldest place I’ve ever been and it was a big step out of my comfort zone. It was a terrific experience and the start of my journey of falling in love with this country. In 2013 I came to Kyiv for the first time (again in deep snow, this time in March) and I have been coming regularly ever since. I’ve met some great friends along the journey who introduced me to many of these places and without them this site wouldn’t have been possible.

In 2015, I met my girlfriend, Yuliya who I now live with in Kyiv most of the year and travel together the rest of the time exploring Europe and beyond. We usually visit attractions, bars and restaurants in Kyiv together and then write reviews here for you to enjoy and help you to make the best of your trip to Kyiv.

We’d love to hear from you with any comments or if you have places you want us to visit, just send us an email.
