by Wyodude

I'm planning a trip to Kiev March 2-11 and would like to find an English speaking guide so I can make the most of my time there. I would like to see the great historical sights and experience the Ukraine culture.

From Balkans to Kyiv - chestnut tree story

by om_212

Kyiv is a very green city, with a lot parks and botanical gardens, and simply green streets. The best time to admire Kyiv in all it’s “green” beauty is May, when chestnut trees began to blossom.

Chestnut tree is a Kyiv symbol and most of people take for granted and think that it’s just one of the many typical tress that grow in Ukraine. As a matter of fact it is not. Chestnuts are (or rather were) not typical for the areas. They have been imported to Kyiv from Balkans by the general governor Bibikov in 1842 to impress a Russian Tsar Nicolas I. The exotic for the city trees have been planted along the Bibikov Boulevard (now Shevchenko) just over night. Then Bibikov sent a herald to announce this news to the Tsar who at that time was Zhytomyr. The story says that when the tsar heard the news he abruptly left the room. This was understood as complete dissatisfaction and chestnut trees were all taken out, thrown away and replaced by another exotic tree - Lombardy poplars (still planted along the blvd).
When the tsar finally arrived to Kyiv, he was greatly surprised to see poplars instead of chestnut trees as well as to learn that it was him who “disliked” and “ordered” to take them out. Well, it turned that at the moment when the herald announced the news, the tsar… was bitten by a wasp ;) and simply had to leave the room.

Well, one person’s junk, another person’s treasure. Thrown away chestnut trees have been picked up by local botanists and planted first in the botanic gardens, and then all over the city.

View on Trukhaniv Island

by OlenaKyiv

View on Dnipro, Bridge for pedestrians to Trukhaniv Island. April, 2003 About 2 years ago young people went above bridge on arch of the bridge. It is really dangerous as it is very narrow there and it is hard to pass for two people. The builders did everything they could to prevent such walks building barriers. But anyway there are some people who is going there.

Polish control

by Listig

After the Treaty of Lublin (1569) and the Treaty of Berestya (1596) the position of the Catholic and Greek-Catholic churches was consolidated and a period of Polish expansion began. The residents of Kyiv actively participated in the national-liberation war against Poland.
