Kiev, Ukraine. October 10, 2005.

Here are pictures from Kiev, the former capital of medieval Kievskaja Rus’ state, cradle of modern Ukrainian, Russian and Belorussian states. We call it “the mother of Russian cities”. It is also the holy place for all eastern Orthodox Christians due to numerous religious places. I was there only several hours on my way to Rostov, but I had managed to visit the most famous places in the city, including the Sofijsky Cathedral, Mikhailovsky Monastery, Independence Square, Kreschatik street and Holy Dormition Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, of course.
