Kyiv: Soviet History and Architecture Private Guided Tour

2. Kyiv: Soviet History and Architecture Private Guided Tour

See Kyiv's history through the eyes of a local guide and immerse yourself in the history of the Ukranian capital. Visit relics of the country's Soviet past not often seen by tourists and learn how the city has been transformed since World War II.  Your expert guide will pick you up at your accommodation and lead you to Khreshchatyk Street, a perfect introduction to the Soviet legacy in Kyiv's architecture. Almost completely destroyed during World War II and rebuilt in the early 1950s, this street follows the Stalin Empire style with some elements of Ukrainian Baroque. Stroll past highlights such as City Hall, Kyiv Passage, the Ukrainian House (former Lenin Museum), Hotel Ukraine, and more, and learn their historical significance to the city.  Enter the government district and see the imposing building of the Cabinet of Ministers. Decorated with stucco work, columns, and pilasters, it is considered to be the true masterpiece of Soviet architecture. Not far is the Parliament of Ukraine, with its marble columns and glass-dome roof.   Visit the WWII Museum and see the Motherland Monument – one of the most recognizable symbols of Soviet Kyiv. This impressive 102-meter monument was opened in 1981 and remains one of the tallest statues in the world. Finally, explore the Soviet residential quarters of Kyiv, a sight often missed by tourists in the city.
