Old Town of Kyiv – Virtual Private Tour
Explore the highlights of the Old Town of Kyiv from the comfort of your couch!
If you had to cancel a trip to the capital of Ukraine because of lockdowns but it’s on your bucket list, it may be a while until you can travel again. In the meantime, get the Virtual Guided Tour and see what to expect from this trip in the future!
On this tour, I will lead you in real-time via live streaming through the Old Town of Kyiv – a spiritual center of the city. Your knowledgeable Kyiv local guide will tell you about the historical significance of these places.
Share with you the local stories about the objects, and answer any questions you may have. The virtual real-time streaming tour is a different experience from an offline Kyiv walking tour. Through the magic of technology, you will travel to the Old Town of the Ukrainian capital from the comfort of your own home.
Virtual tour of Kyiv itinerary :
- You will explore the main medieval attractions of the Old Town Kyiv area: Golden Gate, St.Sophia Cathedral, St.Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery, St.Andrew’s Church, Andryiivskyi Descent, and interesting street art objects – all from the screen of your computer or smartphone.
- For any questions you might have, there’s a live Q&A talk with your private guide during the tour.

Details of the virtual tour:
