Very impressive visually, Lots of history here, not overly busy for a city center, stunning fountains scattered around which starting at 9pm light up and dance to music. Lots of food places nearby and a great underground market directly underneath.

A symbol of the city. Just super huge. More important for its history than beautiful, but you cannot say you visited Kiev without visiting.
