Khreshchatyk is considered to be one of the most interesting streets of the city. It is the central and the most popular street among the citizens and guests in Kiev. From this spot you may easily get to the Independence Square (Maidan Nezalezhnosti) – the main square of the Kyiv city. An interesting fact is that Khreshchatyk is one of the widest but short streets.
Nevertheless, it will not be so easy to get acquainted with all the must-see places on Khreshchatyk – the length of the main street of the country exceeds one kilometer, and new sights await tourists on almost everywhere.
