The best restaurant to have some delicious Ukrainian cuisine! Highly recommended to go if you want to try local food, in particular "borscht". "Borscht" is a traditional Ukrainian red sour soup loaded with meat, potatoes, vegetables, cabbage and beets, usually served with a sour cream.

Parks & Nature
A charming park across Taras Shevchenko University 5 minutes walking distance from the apartment. A perfect place for rest and temporary escape from the rhythms of the city. The park has its own free WiFi. There is a statue of a famous Ukrainian poet Taras Shevchenko in the middle of the park. You can grab coffee at an old No 6 tram transformed to gift and coffee shop and relax on the lounge chair at the fountain or one of the many benches. Here you will see the elderly men gather to play chess, domino and backgammon. So if you like one of these games, they will welcome you with no doubt. Great place for jogging too!

A hidden bar, it took first place in the ratings of Kiev cocktail bars for the last few years. Unique atmosphere and cocktail classics. Located inside Cinema "Kiev" building (enter the building, turn left and go down the basement to reach the Bar). If you have issues to find the place feel free to ask the locals nearby to show you the directions.
