In Kiev you can see more than 30 architectural styles of different eras from the time of Kievan Rus in the 11th century to the present day and all are architecturally unique to Ukraine. From Byzantine architecture, through Ukrainian baroque, Soviet realism to 21st century designs, you will see them all as you walk through the main districts of the city.

The most outstanding examples of sacred architecture are the Byzantine-inspired styles in the churches and cathedrals: St. Sophia’s Cathedral (a UNESCO world heritage site), St. Cyril's Church, Church of Our Saviour (Berestovo) and St. Michael's Monastery Church at Vydubitsky.

We will also learn about the peculiarities of Ukrainian baroque and rococo styles from the second half of the 17th and first half of the 18th centuries. Ukrainian Baroque architects include Schedel, Kvasov, Rastrelli, Grigorovich-Barsky and others.

From the 18th and 19th centuries we will visit Contract House, the main building of the Kiev National University, the Institute of Noble Maidens and others. Architects from this period include Beretti, Visconti, Hastie and Milensky.

Kiev abounds in Art Nouveau buildings ranging from Austrian and Belgian styles to Ukrainian modernism; many of the new buildings in Kiev’s city center are built in the unique style of Ukrainian modernism that is at once beautiful and functional.

One of the most extraordinary masterpieces of 19th century Kiev – the House with Chimeras - is now part of the Ukrainian Presidential administration. Close by is another representative of this style – the House of the Crying Widow designed by the architect Bradtman.

We will also see the National Bank building, Old Kiev Hill with its many intriguing buildings and view St. Andrew's Church as we walk down St. Andrew's Descent to visit the Kiev-Mohyla Academy. We will walk through the Perchersk and Podil districts and Kiev’s main street Kreshatik which contains examples of Soviet administrative architecture and the Maiden which is modern Ukraine’s Independence square and monumental center.
