Kyiv is a city full of green oases, and as they turn into yellow-golden urban islands in autumn, the fall season is a great time to discover Ukraine's capital. Here are our top 5 things to do in Kyiv during this beautiful period.
Discover Kyiv's surroundings
Just outside of the city, you can find a number of fascinating open air museums: Pyrogovo Museum, the Mezhyhirya Residence and Radomysl castle all offer breathtaking views on gorgeous autumn landscapes while letting you dive into Ukrainian culture. Plus, the restaurants on site give visitors the chance to get a taste of traditional Ukrainian food.
To experience the magical autumn atmosphere without leaving the city, take a walk through one of the numerous city parks.
