Service description



«Paranormal Kiev» is a mystical excursion about places of fears and horrors with amazing events and facts of the presence of the world of the dead among us.

Of course, it is in Kiev that the eternal battle between good and evil is taking place, and thanks to this, a relatively shaky balance of power is still maintained in the world, otherwise how can you explain such a large number of holy temples and damned bald mountains in one place? On the tour, you will learn about terrible paranormal phenomena, from which the blood runs cold, they happened to the heroes of the stories, and can reliably happen to you.

On this tour you will learn and see:

  • Where there was an abandoned altar, on which until recently there was someone's blood.
  • Who the legendary snake fighter really was.
  • Where devils crawled to the surface in Kiev.
  • Why did the residents of Podil ask to rename one of the streets?
  • Where was the church, where the baths themselves changed for new ones.
  • Where did the Kiev inquisitors punish the sorcerers?
  • In which house was the poltergeist recorded for the first time?
  • Where in the center of the city is an ancient forgotten cemetery, which is better to bypass.
  • In which well the local witch Podol drowned the girls.
  • Who the first metropolitan witch really was.
  • Why do mystics use salt in rituals?
  • Who was the first Satanist of Kiev.


This tour is dedicated to the famous Kiev castles. In the past, however, as in our time, wealthy people of Kiev loved to flaunt luxurious houses in front of each other. The best architects brought to life all the whims of the customers with the help of bricks and concrete. Many of these buildings resembled real castles, which seemed to have descended from medieval engraving. And today they have practically not lost their flavor. It seems that it is worth crossing the threshold of such housing, as the guards dressed in armor will block the road with halberds and sternly ask - Why disturb the peace of the owner? Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of antiquity and visit some of the most notable castle-style mansions.

The first object of the excursion will be the famous Baron's House, which is located at the beginning of Yaroslavov Val Street, one of the unspoken symbols of Old Kiev. You will spend about an hour exploring it, go around all the corners and go up to the famous tower. Further along the route - the Gothic castle of Lapinsky. You will study it externally and learn from what real prototype the clinic-shelter of the poet Ivan Bezdomny was depicted in the immortal novel The Master and Margarita.

The last in line is the picturesque, but dilapidated Steingel castle on the street. Bulvarno-Kudryavskaya, where the event will end. From there you can go down to Victory Square, where there is an excellent transport interchange. Of course, the excursion will be flavored with a fair amount of stories about all the adjacent buildings and natural boundaries, which border the sights described above.

You will learn:

  • What a mystical house in Kiev looks like from the inside.
  • Where the holy doctor and Mr. helicopter lived.
  • Where was the border between poor and rich Kiev.
  • Where is the real castle of the Baron.
  • How the only real boulevard in Kiev was built.
  • Where is the World War II two-story air defense bunker.
  • Where the apartment of the creator of the first computer in Europe was located.
  • What is the barbocan and where is the only object of this kind located in the city.
  • Why the house of the German millionaire was cut in half.
  • How Kiev castles were born and what function they actually performed.


Goloseevsky Forest is the largest park in Kiev, a life-giving place where strength is restored. You can see around this beauty in 4 hours of excursion.

Here, as if from lace, ancient paths and blue streams are woven. The secrets of our ancestors are preserved by a unique settlement of the times of Russia, thousand-year-old oaks that witnessed the flourishing of powerful Kiev remember all guests of the dense virgin forest, and all this harmony is guarded by three monasteries of different eras, which enveloped everything around with synergy.

Sometimes during the excursion you will get the impression that you are hundreds of kilometers from the metropolis with its noise and endless traffic of cars, but in fact you will not even leave the outskirts of the city.

The route will start from VDNKh - the reserve of the Soviet Union, here you will cross the border of time and space and find yourself in the places of leaks of the Slavic civilization, you will see the historical places of Samburka, Myshelovka, Kitaevo and other chronicle names that have been lost on the pages of history.

  • Why VDNKh was called the town of miracles.
  • Where is the secret botanical garden located.

  • How a girl from these lands taught soldiers not to be afraid of fear.
  • With whom did the Cossacks play cat and mouse?
  • Where you can hear the sounds of the Earth's rotation around the Sun.
  • What an open-air monastery looks like.
  • Where was the line of demarcation between the Slavs and nomads.
  • How water from a holy well saves from various diseases.


On an excursion without illusions and decorations, you will be told about the sinful life of Kiev during the times of great debauchery, when the modern streets of the center were obscene red-light districts, where all the night butterflies of the city flocked to. At first glance, they are no different from others, but every old house that has survived here remembers tragic, comic, and sometimes happy stories.

You will plunge into the whirlpool of urban sensuality in the early 1850s, remember the young and beautiful-bodied girls described in Kuprin's story «The Pit», reveal the role of a brothel Kiev during the Second World War, but you will not ignore the modern life of night fairies.
Searches in this piquant topic will end with the truth - «holy love is a great feeling, like the world, and not at all lying in bed».

The area got its big name from the settlement of ethnic Tatars, mainly soap-makers and merchants, who, hiding from imperial persecution, settled in the suburbs of the capital. Later, the Ukrainian intelligentsia came here, the cozy locality and the tranquility of the moderate life inspired people of creative professions. The outstanding artist Murashko, writer Paustovsky, engineer Paton and many other personalities lived here.

On the excursion, you will see the city from a different angle, instead of modern skyscrapers you will be greeted by cozy old palaces and estates of famous Kievites, instead of noise and wide streets there is such silence in which you can hear birdsong, and narrow winding roads and paths instead of everyday history.
