We are just week away from the 32nd anniversary of that world’s deadliest technological nuclear disaster. On April 26th 1986 the reactor number 4 at the Chernobyl atomic plant went apart as a result of mishandling by the reactor staff. However, the RBMK graphite-moderated soviet reactor itself was far from safe under certain (theoretical) operational conditions. At the proximity of the USSR bosses’-beloved holiday of the 1st of May the yellow jersey (red flag for labor leadership) was by coincidence held by the potentially world’s largest nuclear plant at the Chernobyl, and the chief director and operators staff were urged upon the new experimental achievements, which could raise up the bar in soviet atomic industry. Thus, the Soviet government ordered to proceed with secret experiment, so that even the chief engineer of the plant was not informed of it (!!) and was never summoned to that night shift.
Tourists from India increasingly choose Kyiv for their journeys. During the first half of 2017 the flow of visitors from India increased by 34% and amounted to more than 6000 people. This is, of course, more due to the improvement of the visa regime between our countries, it is now possible for citizens of India to obtain a Ukrainian visa upon arrival at the airport for $ 60. In addition, it became known to us that one of the air carriers plans to open a direct flight from Delhi to Kiev in May 2018, which will definitely affect the tourist flow between the two countries.
In Kiev almost everything is related to art in its different manifestations. Ancient paintings and street art, classical and modern alternative theaters, philharmonic concerts, rock'n'roll and, of course, jazz.
Incredibly delicious and extremely cheap - restaurants in Kiev where you can eat homemade Ukrainian food like a local!
Those who first come to Ukraine do not believe their eyes that so much can be eaten for such a small amount of money. And then they try food and say that it's just like a dream.
The last month of the summer is worth to spend it sprightly.
We offer a list of the highlights of the coming month, so you know what to do in Kiev (of course, after a tour of Kiev's sights with capitaltourskiev :) ).
