One of the world's greenest cities, Kyiv has something for everyone: from history and culture to fine food and good times
Boryspil Airport is the closest airport to the Kyiv City Center and the conference venue. The easiest way is to take a taxi (Uber perfectly works in Ukraine) straight from the airport to residence. Estimated time between Airport and Kyiv City Centre 30 minutes.

Taxis can often be found waiting directly outside the terminal, in the passenger drop-off/pick-up area. However, you can use Uber app to get to your accomodation.

Whether it's your first time in Kyiv or you're a frequent visitor, the following should help get the most from your trip. Read a brief information about Kyiv from Lonely Planet, including major places of interest.
We would especially recommend the following attractions near the Venue:
St. Michael's Cathedral - a sky-blue cathedral built in the 12th century. Even though it was destroyed by the Soviets in 1937, the valuable mosaics were rescued. The cathedral was renovated in 1999 and now proudly demonstrates the greatest creations of the Old Russian monumental painting. Fantastic views open up in front of you from the bell tower of the monastery.
Andriivskyi Descent is the place where you can find a huge collection of Ukrainian souvenirs of all types. It is considered to be the brightest street with the highest concentration of art representatives. Two theaters, lots of art cafes, several museums including the house of the mysterious "Master and Margarita" author — Mikhail Bulgakov and a house with handmade chocolate — all those are open for you during the day. Don't pass by St. Andrew's Church built by the project of Italian master Bartolomeo Rastrelli. A graceful beauty of the interior decorations won't leave you untouched.
The Sculptures Alley is a funky street packed with contemporary art sculptures.Walk from St. Andrew's Descent towards the Kyiv Museum of History and soon you'll see the famous mosaic cats.
Independence Square, also known as "Maidan Nezalezhnosti" is the central square of Kiev and the place for the Revolution of Dignity (2013). It's a huge open space with fountains, the Independence Column and a great variety of cafes. We really recommend to visit an atmospheric restaurant The Last Barricade and enjoy real Chicken Kyiv.
