From Peliemonhy monument to Kheshchtik main street, is the long boulevard of Taras, Shevchenko! You can expecting to see the vokzal, university of Taras Shevchenko, park shevchenko, and the zoloti volota there as well! It's around 5 kms I think, visited from Aug 2012 to Dec 2016.

A lengthy boulevard that you can use to get from the Bessarabka end of Khreshchatyk to Shevchenko Park, if you fancy a nice stroll. Some decent shops and a few eateries. There is a centre island which you can stroll along, which is less busy than the street pavements. Ok. Nothing more.

This street is OK. There are some nice buildings on it and many sites accessible from it. But I am not really sure who would go here just to see the street.

Nice architecture, clean pavement area but there are much more beautiful streets in Kiev. I see no special, frankly speaking. Maybe someone else has a different opinion but today I had a walk there and really disliked that the traffic on the main road was so busy so I turned the corner and found it more interesting and calm.

This is a nice walk up the hill. It brings you from the main shopping street Khrestjatik (Chist street) to my favourite park of the city: Shevchenko Park. Along the left you can find shops and on the right you can find nice restaurants and in the middle you can walk between the Oaktrees. Just wonderful!

There's a nice park opposite the University; actually, with some decent eating places; especially in the Summer ..... it's worth the visit.
