Before a recent trip to Kiev, the capital city of the Ukraine, I had a hard time finding travel guides and pictures about the Eastern European destination. Located right on the Dnieper River, the historic city of Kiev far exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend getting a translator/city guide to show you around especially if you don't speak any Russian or Ukrainian.
I was lucky enough to see the city with one of the best Kiev tour guides, Helen Klimova. She not only comes armed with an iPad to show you pictures of historical figures and relevant graphics, but she also brings along local treats for you to sample, like birch tree juice! You can book tours with Helen on her website www.tourinkiev.com or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here are pictures from our adventures in Kiev!
