This is a pleasant area of town to have a wander. There are lots of souvenir stands, including an odd selection of antiques. There is a row of artists stalls. In the evening much of it closes, but there are buskers. The cobbled streets add to the atmosphere. St. Andrews itself is under renovation, but the street is still lively.

Andriyivski Uzviz or St Andrew's cathedral is currently under construction and can't be visited at least per 17 June 2016. The surrounding area is filled with souvenir stands and was called the "Montmartre of Kiev" by our tour guide.

A pity they couldn't do what I have seen on other ancient structures undergoing similar work where the plastic sheeting is actually imprinted with a photograph of what its covering. Because of the work there is no entrance either. No... More

It is definitely worth a visit. A small steep street witnessed multiple changes through centuries. You will find a couple of museums and even a small theatre there, leave alone a plenty of cafes and restaurants. Some of the famous "The White Guards" film was also performed there. The street is full of souvenirs traders, which makes it a little... More
