good building to go and have a look at, some nice bars and market stalls close by and not overly populated/very few beggars.

I did not manage to get inside, but when you pass by this place you will notice it for sure, it is very interesting building but it really looks 'fake'.

Another overly rated attraction. I could not believe that people were using tour guides, to visit this attraction, which itself was quite hilarious! Other than seeing a rebuilt gate, there is nothing more. I suggest you spend your time elsewhere.

Huge and majestic monument in the earth of the city. A bigger value for me cos my hotel was right there. The whole square will be one of the best memories I will keep from this place.

It was so cool walking from our hotel to Maidan to turn the corner and see the Golden Gate. It is well taken care of and the information regarding the site is written in both Ukrainian and English which made it more accessible for us.

Although you can drive by without knowing what it is, I highly recommend stopping and taking a closer look. You will actually get the feel of the history

The place is close the aziz sofia cathderal and bohdan monument. It is nice too see and taken a few photos but entering to building is not necessary. Around the building there cafes you can rest. 15 minutes are enough.
