    hi,

    we're looking at booking a trip to the Ukraine this September and I was wondering what things to do in Kiev are popular amongst tourist, and attractions we shouldn't miss?

    hi there,

    Shopping for Ukrainian crafts and art is something you shouldn't miss out on. The historic Andriyivsky Uzviz street is the best place for this.

    Other places of interest include:

    - Independence Square where Ukraine gained independence from the Soviet Communist Party.

    - The Golden Gate Kiev which was built in the eleventh century, and it was part of the wall that defined the limits of the city and protected Kiev from invaders.

    - St. Sophia Cathedral and its thirteen golden domes

    - The National Opera House and Mariinsky Palace are also worth checking out.

    That depends on what your interests are.
    Your priorities may vary from pub to museum, so the recommendations are dependable too.
    Nevertheless the old center of the city is a one great sight by itself.
