Have a good time!
What celebration did you mean by the way?
As to a stay at a monastry in or near Kiev as a pilgrim, you have to be Orthodox to be blessed for doing it....No payment is expected of a pilgrim...just some obedience...Enjoy! ><><><><><><><><><

Travel Tips for Kiev

Kiev is life

by abettorbob

Kiev is alive and full of naïve optimism! The spirit is upbeat, full of hope and with a positive vibe.
Having read what I could find about Kiev and Ukraine—I ventured off for several solo days to see what this city had to offer. (Plenty!!) Naturally impressed by the architecture and building designs, the cleanliness was impressive as well. Odessa seemed more grungy in comparison—still way cool and worth the visit! I arranged an apartment (way cheaper than hotels generally) right next to the Museum and across the street from awesome city partk (Marlinsky Park/Palace.) The park is full of life, rollerblading, couples and smiles---sort of. When you go, cross Lover’s Bridge and look for my solo initials. Find your way to Volodimir’s statue—the story of mass baptism and conversion to Christianity or face death and torture-makes accepting a change of faith more palatable.
This is a great walking park and really the whole city. Bring GOOD STABLE walking shoes. Find your way to about the only statue of Lenin—idealism is great until you include the human element. All the Cathedrals are impressive but leave lots of time for St. Andrew’s and the arts and crafts all along the hilly street- start at the top, stop for $.60 beer halfway down and spend- help the community and practice your negotiating skills in a new language, (for me this is zero knowledge.)
Kiev offers so much to see and appreciate (with wonderment and awe!) Give yourself time for thoughtful reflection all around Freedom Square any time of day but especially sunset and after dark.
I did not find Starbucks but plenty of espresso etc (< $1.00) – have several or a double premium vodka for $2.50. The food is great, prices even better. This city is truly alive with a powerful spirit now and the hope, more like expectation of more good things to come. So GO!
Incidentally, the ladies are remarkably attractive, too!!!! Safe travels

FOR MEN ONLY! walk by...

by Giulia_ua

FOR MEN ONLY! walk by Khreschatik. This is the main street of Kiev. Just walk and enjoy. However, avoid big holidays and concerts held on Midan Nezalezhnosti. On those days too many drunk people can spoil the impression. Just look around - so many beautiful girls. Beautiful girls can be met in every city of Ukraine and of Eastern Europe as well. But, Kiev is the capital of our country, and girls from all around Ukraine come here to study and/ or work. As the result, there are so many real beauties…

St. Alexander Catholic Church

by OlenaKyiv

First Roman-Catholic church as mentioned in old documents existed till 1233. In 1814 Roman-Catholic community decided to build own church and give it the name of Russian tsar Alexandr I. Money for the building were collected from Polish families according to amount of servants (kripak) they had (25 kopiyka per person). The new church was built on the place of old burnt church.

The construction began in 1817 by a project of architect Piler, but around 1830 construction slowed down due to lack of money. Further works continued but under cheaper project of architect Mehovych. The building was finished in 1838, but interior and exterior works took almost ten years. In 1842 Kiev nobles began to gather money for construction again, asking not only catholics, but people of other religions as well. It was decided that each county (povit) of Kiev's area must contribue 1200 rubliv. The church was finished in 1842 (some resources tell 1847).

The building is in a style of classicism, in square shape, with a dome, two towers, and portico on entrance.

In 1937 the church was closed and then turned into dormitories. From 1952 there was planetarium and a part of historical library. In October 1990 the church was returned to Catholic community. This Catholic church is light color and calls upon to merry life (for me at least) compare to another Kiev's Catholic church located on V. Vasylkivska street.

A Morning View

Enjoying the views from my hotel window at Tourist Hotel.
This is the new district on the left bank called "Darnitsa".
You can also see the famous Metro Bridge with a metro train on it.
The high building to the right of the avenue is "Tourist" hotel.
