Shopping in Kiev

Kiev is a good hunting ground for anyone who’s on the lookout for souvenirs to take back home. Local embroideries, textiles, ceramics and handicrafts are by far and away the best buys in Kiev- they’re attractive, and most markets have a fair range of crafts on sale. The vicinity of St Sophia’s Church, Andrievsky Uzviz and Percherska Lavra are among the best places to go looking for souvenirs.

Kiev is also known for its farmer’s markets, areas where the best and freshest of fruit and vegetable finds its way. The city’s largest markets include the Besarabska Market, the Lukiyanivsky and the Tsentralniy Rinok. All are crowded, bustling places where it’s very easy to lose a wallet, so keep an eye on your possessions.
