Golden Gate, Kiev

4.0
#5 of 82 in Museums in Kiev
Although no one passes through it any more, Golden Gate stands as the remaining historical gateway to an ancient fortress, representing one of the main landmarks of the city. Dating back to 1017, the 12 m (39 ft) tall structure served as an honorary entrance for the wealthy, city politicians, and ambassadors from abroad. Although severely damaged in Mongol attacks of 1240, the gate represented the city's gala entrance until the mid-18th century. Most of the ruined part was excavated in 1832 and reattached. Pay particular attention to the top of the monument--it houses the Church of the Annunciation. If you wish, you can visit the national museum within the gate.

  • Great piece of history within the city. I passed it byu many times, but haven't been inside. It is impressive structure and a history surrounding it and the history of the city are all very interesting. Recommended for history enthusiasts.
  • Interesting part of Kiev's history and enterance to the old city. Sat outside and watched the world go by. A visit to the restaurant on the other side is worth a visit of only to see the sculpture made of plastic forks 😀
