Kyiv (or Kiev) is one of the oldest cities in Eastern Europe. Archaeological excavations show that the settlements in the Kyiv area date back 15-20 millenia. In ancient times Kyiv was the capital of the formidable Kievan Rus – the confederation of the Slavic city-states, whose heyday falls on the reign of Saint Vladimir «The Baptist» (960-1015 AD), who brought Christianity to the then pagan Kievan Rus. Later Vladimir’s son, Yaroslav «The Wise» (978-1054 AD), furthered his father’s cause and has literally put Kievan Rus on the map of Europe.

WORLD FAMOUS OPERAS
The Ukrainian opera and ballet art is famous in the whole world. The National Opera of Ukraine succeeded to integrate into the world’s music life, which can be attested by regular tours and participation in international contests.
The history of the National Opera of Ukraine commenced in 1867 when numerous petitions addressed to the government yielded the creation of a regular opera troupe in Kiev, which was then one of the significant centers of the empire. The first music theatre appeared beyond the empire’s capitals – Moscow and St. Petersburg.
In general, the artistic traditions in Kiev can be traced back to the remote past. We know this from the epic cycle where the acrobats and skomorokhs (wandering artists) who performed in the court of prince Volodymyr the Great are described.

THE TERRITORY HAS BEEN
FOR 30 YEARS
In 1986, Chernobyl became the site of the largest technological disaster in the history of mankind. Everything has changed since then: more than 100,000 tourists from all over the world visit the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone every year. It is the most popular tourist attraction in Ukraine. The territory of the Zone has become a natural park inhabited by rare animal species. Today Chernobyl is a must-see place for everyone; therefore tour to Chernobyl is the most popular excursion in Ukraine.
Nature abhors a vacuum. People left the Exclusion Zone in 1986, but hundreds of animal and bird species, including those listed in the Red Book, inhabit this territory now. Here you can see black cranes, eagle owls, elks, dears, wolves, as well as Przewalski’s horses and even bears and lynxes.

Strategic Missile Forces Museum Tour :
Strategic Missile Forces Museum Tour + Tank driving:
After the collapse of the USSR, Ukraine inherited 176 intercontinental ballistic missiles. Almost half of them were located on a secret base near the city of Pervomaisk. Each of these missiles could reach the USA and carried a nuclear charge, which was ten times greater than the bombs that had destroyed Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Until the end of the 1990s, it was impossible to get to the base territory guarded by radiolocation detection system, 3,000 volts of electricity, a minefield and soldiers with machine guns. Since 2001, things changed greatly as the missile forces base has become a unique museum.
STRATEGIC MISSILE FORCES MUSEUM TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:
- A real missile forces base
- Ballistic missiles and their components
- "RED" button and UCP

“...Amazing examples of how people can complement the nature’s creations and turn them into real works of art.”
The Tunnel of Love became famous thanks to photographers who noticed that pictures shot in the tunnel are incredibly atmospheric and fabulous. Today, the Tunnel of Love is one of the top European attractions. Thousands of travelers visit it every year.
Ukrainian amber also attracts tourists as it is more suitable for making jewelry than the Baltic. And its big size (sometimes they find 3-5 kg nuggets) allows to create unique things. It’s the only Amber Museum in Ukraine where you can see unique exhibits such as nuggets with fossil insects, the oldest amber item in Ukraine, which is a disk-amulet (more than 2 thousand years old), and about 2 kg amber nugget.
Do you want to acquire unique amber products for your collection? Welcome to the brand store of the “Yantar Ukrainy” (“Ukraine’s Amber”) company. Here you will find a large selection of amber jewelry, sculpture and pictures, as well as exclusive items (e.g. amber club and amber table lamp).

Since the early days of Kievan Rus, there was a monastery in Mezhyhirya. According to legend, the library of Prince Yaroslav the Wise was kept in it. In 1935, the monastery was completely destroyed and a residence for the Soviet statesmen was built on its territory.
From 2007 to 2014, the former President Yanukovych built an incredibly luxury 140-hectare complex, enclosed by a 5-meter fence. In 2016, Transparency International named Yanukovych the number one top corruption symbol in the world. Today Mezhyhirya is one of the Ukraine’s main attractions and a vivid example of how power and money can influence a person.
- In Mezhyhirya, there is a Museum of retro cars, where you can see collection cars, Soviet representative limousines and even military equipment;
- “Honka” is the main element of the Museum of Corruption with many unique (and insanely expensive) things such as golden chandeliers, a music box that costs $ 0.5 million, a flower pot decorated with snake skin, Steinway & Sons piano etc.
