Book of the Week - "Awesome Kyiv: Interesting things you need to know".

Book of the Week - "Awesome Kyiv: Interesting things you need to know". Kyiv is intoxicating. The city explodes with art and culture. Across Kyiv's numerous squares, locals debate politics, play chess and gossip. Its layered history, lush parks and hidden islands along the wide Dnipro provide for endless exploration. Its tree-lined promenades entice lovers to stroll, and revelers to gawk. It's a city of flaneurs. Of poets. Of politics. With this book we are pleased to share with you our love of Kyiv. The book in neither a guide nor a manual. Rather, it's an insight into the city we adore - wonderful, fascinating and strange.
