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.
