On Orthodox Epiphany, which is celebrated on January 19, there is a tradition to plunge into ice-cold water, it has become popular again in Kyiv after the fall of Soviet Union.
Right near Lybidska metro is one of my favorite Kyiv’s examples of soviet modernism – “Tarilka”. It translates as a “plate” and looks like a levitating UFO 🙂
There was some snow on the beginning of the week, but everything dried away on a next day, and it feels like spring again.
I was so inspired by reconstructions of Kazimir Malevich’s lectures (I wrote about it in here). I bought a book called ‘Malevitch’ by Jean-Claude Marcadé at Rodovid publishing house. I love their books, they have an awesome office on 17, Khreschatyk street (on the top floor) with a beautiful view from the window.
Recently many music bands have chosen Kyiv for their music videos and let their production take place in the city.
