This gate is located on the way to the Sophia. It seems small, so you might not be interested, but it is worth to visit and get inside. They have quite good material from which you can learn the history of Kiev.

We walked from the Botanical Gardens for about 10 - 12 mins and discovered the Golden Gate. It was one of three gates built in the 11th century to protect Kiev. It was reconstructed in 1982 to mark celebrations of 1500 years of Kiev. There...More

This is just an ordinary reconstructed gate, located near the opera house in Kiev. It's worth stopping by and take a photo or two, but certainly not go inside, as there's practically nothing there.

Less impressive than it sounds, entrance to the place is paid, the place is not very big and not very impressive, to me it's a waste of time

I'm fairly certain that this rebuilt gate has symbolic value to the residents of Kyiv. It is however, a rebuilt gate. If you're walking by, it is worth a couple of pictures.

Interesting to see what remains of one of the old city gates. The entry fee is only 40uah. The exhibits are on one side, with what remains of a church on top.

We took the entrance ticket (40) plus photo permit (20). Basically not worth it. There is virtually nothing inside but the walls of the ancient building.. it puzzles me that they have a guided tour of the place.

Great building, must-see if you're in Kiev. you buy a ticket(very cheap) and you get access to the building inside and the gate itself. once you get to the top floor of the building you can see the wonderful view.
