1st highlight: excursion to the park "Kievan Rus"
We visit the historical park "Kievan Rus", a center of the culture and history of Ukraine built in the old Russian style. The park shows medieval siege machines and weapons, historical musical instruments, old Russian or Ukrainian clothing, armor and other exhibits from the 5th - 13th century AD. We visit the Museum of Medieval Shipbuilding and get an impression of the architecture of old Kiev.
2nd highlight: walk on the "Andrejewskij Spusk"
In the afternoon we take a walk on the Andrejewskij Spusk, which is also known as the "Kiev Montmartre". It is one of the oldest, originally preserved streets in the city. Amongst, there are buildings with art galleries, exhibitions, art workshops and Ukrainian souvenir shops. It is one of the most interesting places in Kiev. Every year, on the last weekend of May, Ukrainian artists from all over the country meet here and offer homemade pottery, traditional clothing, beautiful paintings, carvings, handmade glass, porcelain and many other artistic objects. The city festival, the "djen Kiewa", is one of the annual highlights of the Ukrainian capital and is absolutely worth seeing.
