3 OF THE WRITER’S FAVOURITE SPOTS IN KYIV

Elle (Canada) - - Travel -

Be­sarab­sky Mar­ket

This 100-year-old mar­ket is the next-best thing to a Ukrainian grand­mother’s cooking. Many a Ukrainian ex­pat has at­tempted to sneak lo­cal sta­ples like salo— but­tery cuts of salted pork belly—past cus­toms.

The Pas­sage

An im­pres­sive arch marks the en­trance to this lux­u­ri­ous street (think Prada and Louis Vuitton), just off Kyiv’s main thor­ough­fare, Khreshchatyk. Book a ta­ble at Wolkon­sky Café, where the city’s A-lis­ters lunch.

Marin­sky Park

Grab a scoop of ice cream and walk through the city’s old­est park. It’s home to an im­pe­rial res­i­dence built in 1755 and the equally-pala­tial-look­ing Puppet The­ater, and it of­fers views of the Dnieper River.
