Што ќе правите

Architecture fascinates me especially if it is unusual and hides interesting stories behind the walls.

I will take you to an area overlooked by tourists, but rich in architectural gems & giants.

We will admire the most mind-blowing house, built by the "Gaudi" of Kyiv, with fantastic concrete frogs, goats, elephants and rhinoceros looking at us from the walls and the roof. Your task will be to find a crocodile :)

We’ll move on to Soviet giants forming a triangle of power. They can be loved or hated but rarely leave people indifeerent.

Soviet modernism, neoclassicism , monumentalism, stalinist high risers, stalinist Empire style – we'll learn their differences, symbolism & secrets.

We’ll move on to a royal palace, where zarinas used to rest and stroll, as Kyiv was considered a place of peace & spirituality.

We’ll make a stop on our way to drink coffee at a place guarded by a huge lion, with a heavy door, wooden tables, soft light & the best selection of coffees.
Maybe we’ll see an MP there?

Among other highlights of the walk are:
• lavish Art Nouveau mansions
• theaters, towers & a fairy tale castle
• former Lenin museum
• controversial Soviet monuments
• several “wish” places, making you smile
• amazing panoramas
• modern art installations & sentimental monuments

Through architecture, our experience will help you better understand our history & mentality

I am a certified guide who left office job years ago and never regreted this decision.

I am passionate about my city, history, culture, art and food scene :)

I have a particular interest in architecture since I like the symbolism and meaning hidden in architectural elements and styles.

I study architecture and have 2 blogs: the first one is about Kyiv and its curiosities, and the second one is about socialist buildings in the world.

I enjoy reading, travel, visting concerts and exbitions, all kinds of cultural events and going out.

I am friendly and dynamic, an avid learner, sharing my passion for Kyiv with travelers from all over the world.

Каде ќе бидете

We'll visit an area of power, where we are more likely to meet a minister or an parlament member than a tourist.

This is a place of architectural giants of all styles, which is funnily spiced up with sentimental installations and mini-monuments hiding at corners and arches.

Lyudmylas tour was really insightful. This is the first time I take an architecture tour in any city as kiev has so much history and enormous buildings with so much character. She provided a lot of information about the different styles of some of these beautiful structures. We walked 5km and did a loop around the main square. We stopped at a quaint coffee/cafe and the cacao was delicious. The tour is quite scenic. I’m no architect or history buff but I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. She was also kind enough to help me purchase a sim card for my phone and recommended the best bar in the area. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in knowing more about the history of this city. Lyudmyla, I wish you all the success in your tour!!!
