    Maidan Nezalezhnosti or Independence Square is the heart of the city.Maidan means square and its the same in Turkish .Its very helpful to find the center specially if kyril is not your alphabet and if you are travelling in metro.When you here Maidan you remember that you are in the right place.This is the meeting point for everybody.Ukranians use to drink beer in this specific place .Its not important if its summer or winter .By the way this is also excellent spot for making revolutions.

    Maidan Nezalezhnosty (Independence Square)
    Now is under total reconstruction. It was favorite place to meet of the Kyivites and tourists. While being students we often drank beer near the fountains. The Maidan was looking like this.
