Get to know the secrets of Saint Sophia's Cathedral, one of Kiev's most emblematic buildings, and discover the city's most important monuments on this English language guided tour.
Kiev Guided Tour
After being picked up from your hotel, you'll head to Saint Sophia Cathedral. This architectural masterpiece, a combination of Byzantine and Ukrainian Baroque styles, is one of the most recognisable symbols of Kiev.
Inside the Cathedral, you'll discover its frescos and admire the detailed Virgin Orans mosaic. This six-metre tall image is one of Ukraine's most venerated icons.
After leaving the Cathedral, you'll continue your tour of Kiev, passing through the Golden Gate, the medieval entrance to the city, and contemplating several other important Christian churches, such as Saint Volodymyr's Cathedral and Saint Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery.
The tour will then take you through the streets of Podil, the oldest neighbourhood in Kiev. Walking alongside its medieval buildings, you'll arrive in one of the Ukrainian capital's most modern areas, where you'll be able to admire constructions such as the Art Nouveau-style House with Chimaeras, the Parliament building and the National Opera.
Arriving at Pechersk hillside you'll see the gilded domes of the Cave Monastery, one of Kiev's most emblematic buildings. A stroll along the Dnieper River will bring you to the Maidan, or the Independence Square, and the lively Khreshchatyk Street in the city's most vibrant area.
The tour finishes in the centre of Kiev.
