Back in the USSR (Private Tour)

Our Kyiv Full-Day Sightseeing Private Tour comprises 70 years of Soviet power in Kyiv: its architecture, military facilities and unique constructions.


Find out the tragic and great moments of Kyiv Soviet history and visit all the most notable places of that epoch.


Ukrainian Soviet Republic ceased to exist in 1991. Following the events of 2014 and the beginning of the armed conflict with Russia, the country experienced a new wave of large-scale decommunisation. Many Soviet monuments were demolished and streets and even towns were renamed. However, the Kyiv Soviet heritage is too great to completely disappear or change.


On our private tour, you can:
- experience the most ambitious projects of the Soviet epoch,
- get to know about Kyiv’s growth and the life of its people,
- visit the deepest and the highest city point.

Moreover, you can have lunch at the typical Soviet restaurant feeling like an ordinary Soviet citizen (or an important Soviet party member – you are to choose).
