kiev guided tour

Welcome to Kyiv (Kiev). My name is Lena, I offer guided walking tours/excursions and location scouting.

About me

I graduated from Law faculty of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv.  Right now I’m working on my PhD and I’m engaged in bona fide legal project Legal Hundred that gives free legal help to Ukrainian ATO soldiers.

The history of Kyiv (Kiev) is one of my biggest interests, I like to follow all new cool events in the city and I am very happy to share my knowledge of Kyiv (Kiev). Ukrainian old and contemporary culture, the search of Ukrainian identity have interested me for years. I believe that Ukrainian culture has a lot to offer and it’s still much unknown. On my free time I love to go to different festivals, events so I always know what’s going on and where.

Location Manager/Scout in Kyiv (Kiev)

I can search for a suitable place or location in Kyiv (Kiev) for your film, music video, TV show, advertising, editorial photos etc. I have a legal education I can negotiate about legal access to your desired location and do other required work for location managing. Please contact me: 

Walking tours around Kyiv (Kiev)

How will we tour? Like locals, we’ll use public transport such as metro, trams, buses. And of course, there will be walking. For those who prefer less or no walking, please contact me for other options.

I offer a full-day tour. You choose the time of the beginning. I offer full-day tour because I am genuinely interested to meet the people who travel to Kyiv (Kiev)  and to hang out with all you good people  🙂

Every tour will be individually created according to your interests. Just write me what aspect of a city you want to see.  My main goal is to show you the Kyiv (Kiev) atmosphere which, I believe, is quite unique, some unknown for tourists parts of a city. But since I’m very much into art, pop culture, politics, history I can spice up our walk with some more interesting stuff.

Here are some ideas:

Kyiv during the Soviet Union – the history of occupation, terror, unique examples of constructivist architecture;

For politic geeks – Maidan, Orange Revolution, Mezhyhirya Residence;

Local street fashion brands, new local designers;

Old architecture – streets with XVII, XIX century architecture, more than 1000 y.o. Saint Sophia’s Cathedral;

Art of Ukraine;

Soviet mosaics in Kyiv;

Kyiv during the war on the east of Ukraine;

Industrial areas of Kyiv;

Kyiv for foodies – tradisional food, nice restaurants, cafes, bars.

And many more in my blog and
