Independance Monument in Independance Square

I visited Kiev [written Київ in Ukrainian] in April 2019 with my wife Leashia, my eldest daughter Leora and her boyfriend Jonathan. Kiev is a wonderful place to go for a city break and is easy to get to from England, no visa is required and it’s cheap and easy to get around when you are there. It is city stuffed full of Golden Spires, beautiful parks, attractive streets, statues and monuments….

…..and of course, just two hours away is Chernobyl.
