Khreschatyk Street is named after a stream which used to flow here in the deep valley between the old city to the north (Sofia cathedral and Golden Gate) and Lypy on the south side, on the way to the Pecherska district.The stream flowed down from the sandy woods at the Dnipro escarpment away from the Dnipro, towards the present location of Bessarab market and beyond to flow into the Lybid river. The main railway line follows the Lybid valley through the city.In the early 19th century, Kyiv expanded, and the stream became a dirty open sewer. It was culverted and a street was laid out along the valley. A new City Hall was built where Khreshatik met Mikhailovsky and Sofiisky streets, and the City Hall Square (Dumska Ploscha) became an open maket place.The street became a busy traffic artery; trams ran along it and the economic center of the city gradually shifted here.At the other end of the street a new market was opened, named after Bessarabia, the region bordering on Rumania where a lot of the traders traditionally came from.The street was totally devastated in the second world war. And was rebuilt in the 1950's in grand Soviet style. The street was widened so that it would be suitable for Soviet military parades, fitting the capital of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. This is what gives it its monumental feel.The parades are mostly gone now, many of the buildings have succumbed to western capitalism: Nike, Zara and Marks and Spencer all have branches here.But Khreshatik street is mostly famed for the summer weekends, when it is closed to car traffic and people can stroll along the wide avenue, people gazing or otherwise enjoying the relaxed atmosphere or one or more of the attractions on the way.The famous Central Department Store, half way along, is undergoing reconstruction at the moment and is planned to reopen in 2015 as a super modern gallery behind its Soviet era facade.

Great to stroll along in the evening as the lights come on. Lively, energetic and atmospheric with some truly imposing architecture.

Abends am Wochenende wird ein Teil der Straße für den verkehr gesperrt,die Restaurants und Cafes in dieser Straße sind entsprechend teuer,macht aber Spaß an einem schönen Sommer Abend herumzulaufen

По моему мнению, обычная центральная пешеходная улица! Такая есть во многих городах и в Киеве она ничем не отличается! Под Крещатиком находится один из самых крупных торговых центров.

What a beautiful street in the heart of Kiev. And the history...the site of the Orange Revolution! A great street in which to spend some money as it is lined with your usual high-end western stores. Be sure to take time to just sit on one of the many benches and people watch. And hang out at Independence Square.

Strolling the Kreshchatyk is a normal thing to do on typical weekend day. On Sat / Sun the street is closed to motor vehicles so lots of pedestrian traffic. Sometimes festivals or parades happen here. SUM, the main department store, is located here and so is the Main Post Office. Watch all of the Ukrainian Woman walk hand-in-hand down the street. Each one has spent their entire yearly salary on make-up and stylish clothes As many are dressed to "the hilt!" This is where the action is with more along Andrievsky Spusk as well.

Well if you have time to see just one street it would be this one in Kiev. It is the main street that connects many attractions and cafes and places. Take your time and walk upside and down and definitely try bubble tea when you came across it...

During the day you can shop along this Main Street. In the evening it is filled with street performers. Great for people watching.

Самый центр города, где самые красивые киевлянки и уютные кафешки. Посетить его просто необходимо,при чем не зависимо днем или ночью.

THE Main street in Kiev. Its a great place to get a bite to eat or shop - all the main brands are located on or near Khreshchatyk. A cone of Ice cream and stop to Independance Square is a must!
