Kyiv, a scenic city of close to 3 million people situated on the Dnipro River on trade routes between the Baltic and the Mediterranean, is the bustling capital of Ukraine.
Although many of Kyiv's treasures were destroyed during World War II, extensive restoration has revived much of the historic heritage, from the Cathedral of St. Sophia to the recently reconstructed remains of the former city walls. The modern centre with surviving parts of the old city are on the hilly right of the Dnipro River, while the capital's newer sections stretch out on the flat left bank.
As part of the U.S. Embassy's "Ukrainian Factbook Project," the website features the Guide to Kyiv and the Kyiv Photo Gallery, and the Ukrainian Newsstand, as well as useful practical information for visitors and tourists.
