Kyiv (Kiev)

The center of East Slavic culture, Kiev boasts centuries of eclectic art, architecture, and history.
Start off your visit on the 17th (Thu): see where the ancients bathed at Roman baths, then contemplate the long history of Kyivo-Pechers'ka Lavra, then brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of the History of Ukraine in the Second World War, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Nicolas Cathedral. Here are some ideas for day two: examine the collection at Mikhail Bulgakov Museum, take in the pleasant sights at Sofiyskaya Square, then admire the striking features of St. Sophia's Cathedral, then don't miss a visit to Andriyivski Uzviz, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery.
