As the cultural and political focus of life in Ukraine, Independence Square stands on the northern flank of Khreschatyk, Kiev’s major thoroughfare, and its appearance has changed with the fortunes of the country. Today it is lined with an impressive array of grandiose villas dating mostly from the 19th century, which were built when the city was one of the most important in Russia and now house – among others – the Central Post Office and the Trade Union Association. It is the venue for all the city’s major parades and public celebrations but was scene of civil unrest in 2004 as the focus of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution, and again in 2014.

Among the fountains, the 61-m (200-ft) white-marble Independence Monument looms over the middle of the square and celebrates Ukraine’s breaking away from the Soviet Union in 1991; it was designed by Ukrainian architect Anatoliy Kushch and placed in the piazza on the 10th anniversary of independence. The slender column is topped with a bronze sculpture of Archangel Michael, who is the patron of the city; it looks spectacular when floodlit at night. Below ground is the subterranean Globus Shopping Mall – lit by the glass domes that dot the square – and a metro station; the area is surrounded by hotels, restaurants, pavement cafés and late-night bars, making it one of the most popular meeting places in the city.

Pub Crawl in Kyiv

star-5
Please welcome! The first and the only proper Pub Crawl in Kyiv, Ukraine! Every Saturday at 7:00 PM! Tickets are available to purchase right on spot! We are a group of local drinking enthusiasts from Kyiv and based on many years of drinking and partying experience we decided to share this experience with travelers from all over the world and show Kyiv`s best places, bars and pubs. In our Pub Crawls we avoid fancy places with cocktails for 10 euros, so we collected the most interesting and off-the-beaten venues in Kyiv and developed an excellent route! Walking distance between the bars is not more than 10 minutes so you won`t be tired of long promenades if you`re too drunk after first pub :) At every bar and pub you will get a unique and one of its kind welcome drink or shot (we bet you never tried these shots before!). All our guides are super friendly, fun and experienced drinkers so you never be bored during the crawl and have a lot of fun!
