I'm a local guide, photographer and blogger, a creator of Awesome Kyiv Tours, constantly exploring my City: it's backyards, alternative spots, architecture and urban decay, it's contrasts, new locals spots and hidden gems, cafes&bars, and, most importantly, showing it to my guests. Kyiv is a City where every meter is different from the next one, the city of contrasts, where art squats and ruins might be just a couple of meters from the City's golden domes. Welcome to Awesome Kyiv - as awesome as you are!
