Kyiv, Ukraine!

Kyiv, Ukraine
Thursday, June 30th – Monday July 4th
I bought a one-way return to New York through Kyiv and organised a very long layover of four days.
My father is from and lives in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Whenever I get the chance to visit him I do. I have visited Kyiv many times and I think Kyiv is one the most majestic cities I’ve ever been to.
This post is a collection of events I did while in the city, however, there are more than a million things to do in Kyiv.
Lonely Planet has a lovely guide to all things Kyiv.
