The place is close the aziz sofia cathderal and bohdan monument. It is nice too see and taken a few photos but entering to building is not necessary. Around the building there cafes you can rest. 15 minutes are enough.

Located in a small park surrounded by cafes and restaurants. Nicely reconstructed and a good place to explore for maybe one hour. Gives away part of Kiev's history and is really impressive.

Reconstruction of the gate to Kiev, the original built in 1037. Sits in a nice garden (look for the cat statue!). Did not see the interiour because photos showed it to be of rather litttle interest.

I lived in the Golden Gate area twice and I always felt safe there. The scenery is nice and you can feel the opulence when you move around surrounded by the historical buildings and cafes.

The foundation was rediscovered and this reproduction painstakingly done. The beautiful rebuilt church on top is a wonderful touch. On your busy walk through Kyiv stop by the lovely park surrounding the gate, sit and have a coffee and reflect on the long history of...More
