Kiev Spanish Tour
Amigos, muchas gracias por su ayuda! La situación económicamente que tengo es bastante complicada. Encontrar trabajo en Ucrania es imposible ahora... Mucha gente me pregunta por qué no salgo de Ucrania. Pero yo no puedo... no puedo decir a la gente que quiero mucho "Adios", no puedo dejar mi novio (los hombres no pueden salir de Ucrania durante la guerra), todo lo que tengo está en Ucrania. Es mi país, es mi patria! Muchas gracias a todos por donaciones yo uso este dinero para comprar la comida y ayudar a la gente que está cerca de mi.

Vanishing Beauty of Soviet Modernism
Around the globe, the post-second-world-war years were a period of optimism and extreme experimentation. Ukraine wasn't an exception. That was the time when usually dull and grey Soviet architecture started to get more expressive forms, when local architects were attempting to transform the city into the environment for materialization of artistic thinking – in contrast to the strict unification of city space by typical construction and residential blocks. Abraham Miletskyj, Edward Bilsky, Florian Yuriyev - here are just a few names of the creators of the era whose names are known in the architectural world, and whose works still can be found in the city. And the works remain in the global architectural heritage and attract visitors from throughout the world. Today the buildings are often neglected, so there are chances that they will disappear in 10 or so years. So hurry up to see them and learn more about Ukrainian modernism and brutalism in architecture, as well as about history of the country of the time. Here are objects we will visit: - Hotel 'Salut' - Ex-Pioneers' Palace - House of Furniture - Vernadsky Library - Kyiv's Crematorium - Ukravtodor - House of Cinema All they are situated in different parts of the city, so we will move between them by car. ATTN! Some objects may be unavailable on the day of the tour - and replaced with others, not less interesting.
Ukraine Through Wine & Food plus walking in a Soviet park
One of the most popular AirBnB Experiences in a new edition: past and present of Ukraine and its wines in one tour. It takes place at VDNG - abbreviation of Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy in Soviet time or National Expocenter of Ukraine today. It's a grandiose complex of buildings and a park a bit away from the city center but easily reachable by metro or taxi. In the beginning, we will have a walk around the complex. You'll see its impressive architecture and learn some facts about its Soviet past and present history. At the point we'll also start talking about Ukrainian winemaking, which has a pretty long and interesting history, too. Then we'll proceed to a wine club based on VDNG territory for the tasting itself. I know the owner, and he lets me organize my tastings in his premises. Plus, he's one of the best Ukrainian winemakers, and we'll taste his wines, too. If you're hungry, you can also eat there. During the tasting you will learn even more about the industry: about Ukrainian wine regions, the present state of its development, where else should go, which wineries to visit, and so on. After the tour, you will get a PDF of my short guide around some interesting & tasty places to visit in Kyiv plus a list of wines you should try, and where to buy them.

I would like to invite all the Kyiv city guests to my author’s excursion “Aristocratic city tour”.

We will be walking around, having local coffee ( in the best hidden places ). One thing I can tell you for sure and everyone will be in love with the city after this tour. You will feel the city’s energy and dive into its secrets.
Hello I am organizing a tour to the Chernobyl exclusion zone. On tours, I talk about the causes and consequences after the largest man-made disaster on the planet happened. I also show all those areas that suffered after the accident. We start our tour with a meeting and acquaintance in Kiev at 7:30 am and at 8:00 am we are already leaving for a tour of Chernobyl. On the way, a check-in at a gas station is planned, where tourists can drink coffee, tea, or have a snack on a hot dog, or go to the toilet, because the road will be long. We arrive on the tour at about 10:00 in the morning, we pass the first checkpoint (as if we are crossing the border), we pass passport control and that's it, and we begin our adventure. On the way, we will see places that nature has already completely mastered. We can also see animals that you don't see every day. Is it dangerous here you ask? And I will answer - no. You will be convinced of this for yourself, since during the tour we will have 3 radiation controls, which will show how much the tourists "have become infected with radiation", and even on the tour, each tourist receives a dosimeter-accumulator, which will show the accumulated dose on the tour. The exclusion zone fascinates people, usually after a one-day tour, tourists go to a two-day one.
