Description

Kiev is the capital of Ukraine, the largest country in Europe. It is the largest city in Ukraine with 2.7 million inhabitants. The city has a lovely balance of antiquity and modernity and the gleaming domes of the thousand-year-old monasteries and churches are why Kiev is often referred to as the Golden Domed Rose. Ukrainians are very proud of their cultural heritage.
