Legends of Old Kyiv

Welcome to our sunny and hospital city!

I am a professional tour-guide. I work not only in Kyiv, but organise tours around the whole Ukraine.
Being educated as a historian I enjoy sharing my knowledge with my guests. I absolutely adore Ukrainian nature, culture, history, and, of course, people.
For you I can organize master-classes of national cuisine (you will definitely like borsch and varenyky), Easter eggs paiting, national dances. I will take you to the most beautiful places in Ukraine, where you can enjoy unique traditional atmosphere and meet wonderful people.

I love my country and do my best to make your vacation entertaining, exiting, relaxing, interesting, and unforgetable.

Welcome to Kyiv and welcome to Ukraine!

You start the tour from the Golden Gates, proceed along the ancient main street of the city to the most beautiful cathedral of the Kyivan Rus’. It was built almost 1000 years ago! It front of the cathedral and its bell-tower you will see their mirror. What is this?! I will reveal this mystery during the tour.
The entrance to the Royal Hill is guarded by the stone idols. They will tell you about old days, paganism, mysterious volhvs (druids), and places for sacrifices. Here, in the Hill you will meet princes — Vladimir the Great, Jaroslav the Wise, princess Olga, well-known for her rare love to humanity. You will have a chance to visit a medieval market, to search for ancient treasure, and to prepare a medieval dish.
