KIEV. The walking tour “Along the main street of the capital”– that is one of the most famous high streets in the world. The center of Kiev’s political, commercial and cultural life has been in a full swing here for the last two centuries now.
This street has been the cultural, political and economic center of the city for more than two centuries. The very first telephone, telegraph, tramway, water supply and sewage system, electric and gas lighting and the first Kiev’s skyscraper at last – all these first appeared on Kreschsatik. The tragic 1941 has put an end to the old Kreschatik, but the new, unique for the Eastern Europe block of building arose in its place, being one of the most beautiful constructions of the middle of the 20th century.
