Mystical Podil Kyiv show walk
Learn Kyiv legends, the most mystical city sights and interesting stories while walking around ancient Podil District, tasting wines and liqueurs, communicating and feeling happy to spend 2-3 hours this way.
Mystical Podil is an interactive show-walk around the most mystical locations of Podil District and probably of the entire Kyiv.
First of all, it’s a walk for those who’s interested in the stories and legends of Kyiv. For those who want to better understand how Kyiv beautifully combines its dark side featuring many legends with its light side such as the cities of the early Russ Christianity.
To make it less scientific and historical as well as to abandon the classic excursion format, we combined the walk with the pub-crawl across Podil. So if you want to taste good spirits along the road, then you’re going our way!
