Don’t worry if arrived to Kiev you’vegot cold weather or rain. You've probably already bought Kyiv City Card. You cannot get bored with it for sure.

One of advantages of the discount card - free entrance to Kiev museums and galleries. So let’s go for an unusual walk around museums. Now it will be a walk along Podil streets. To come hereyou need to get to Kontraktovasquare metro station.

At firstwelook into the glorious past of Cossack Ukraine.Hetmanship Museumis located inSpasskayastreet, 16B, in a historic building of the XVII century. The main exhibitions dedicated to the four most famous historical figures: Ivan Mazepa, Bohdan Khmelnytsky, Philip Orlik and PavloSkoropadsky. That means that the museum covers a long stretch of history and culture of the Ukrainian State from 1687 till 1918 - almost three centuries.

Then we invite everyone to the pharmacy. This does not mean that you have already caught a cold and need treatment. Of course you can buythe drugs there, but more importantly, that since the XVII century it is Pharmacy Museum. Long ago in 1728 the German Johann Gaither opened the first private pharmacyat Pritissko-Nikolskayastreet, 7. Since then the buildinghas changed its hosts and mission several times, but now it still works and is used as a drugstore again.

You are a little tired and hungry already. We recommend visitinga unique Gallery – VYSOTSKY, located in a unique place - Vozdvizhenka, at Vozdvizhenskayastreet, 40. It is an old district of Kievrebuilt nowadays, having the historical name of "Gonchary-Kozhumyaki", and all the streets here have kept their original names. The gallery is situated there not long ago, but has already won the sympathies of guests. Charming guides will tell you about the famous bard, poet, musician, actor and other faces of this remarkable man. In additionTagankacafé, located here, serves delicious drinks and snacks. A large variety of events held at this place and constantly updated exhibition make VYSOTSKY Gallery interesting for visiting at any time whenever you come to Kiev.
