Podil district in Kyiv has a rich history and a special bohemian atmosphere. It has always been a center of trade and commerce on the one hand and a beloved place of artists, musicians and painters on the other hand. We invite you to discover all the secrets of Podil with an expert local guide on a private walking tour.

Your acquaintance with Podil starts from a meeting point near St. Andrew’s Church. This masterpiece of baroque architecture will enchant you with its beauty. Its location on the top of Andriivsky descent gives you a perfect chance to see a splendid panorama of Podil from an elegant gazebo. As you stroll down the street, you will pass by such interesting buildings as Richard’s Castle and Bulgakov Museum and learn their history. Andriivsky Descent has many hidden gems, like street art mural “Revival of Ukraine” or secret inner yards. The highlight of Andriivsky descent is an iconic open-air market, where you can find all kinds of hand-made souvenirs and vintage items.

Once you go down the hilly Andriivsky descent, you will see yourself in a specious Kontrakntova Square. It is a heart of Podil, where life is bustling day and night. On a pedestrian zone of the square you will discover a Ferris wheel and “I love Podil” sign for taking pictures. Your guide will show you the buildings of Kyiv Mohyla Academy and Musical Theater, as well as the monument of Hetman P. Sagaydachny and philosopher G. Skovoroda.

Continue the tour as you walk through a vivid Sagaydachnoho Street with lots of trendy bars, shops and restaurant. It leads to Poshtova Square, where the lower station of Kyiv Funicular is located. Moreover, there is a lovely promenade along the Dnipro River, where you can see people riding bikes, skateboards or just strolling around. In your free time after the tour, you may either use the Funicular to get to the Old Town or take a panoramic boat ride in the summertime.
