Known as the “Montmartre of Kiev” this famous street connects the Upper Town with the commercial Podil neighborhood. It is a steep street filled with quaint shops, cafes, museums, and spectacular views. The neighborhood attracts artists and writers and is a very fashionable place to live in Kiev. The area draws its name from the dramatic and very baroque St. Andrew’s Church that was built by the Russian Tsaress Elizabeth Petrovna in 1754.
