This is an interesting Boulevard in the center of Kiev. There areonuments, street perform performers, artists and numerous shops. There are also panhandlers, homeless, pimps and "hooligans". It is a very safe area, loaded with numerous restaurants, bars and cafes. It is kept very safe because it is where most tourists end up when in Kiev. I have walked it every night, visited several cafes and a couple of the bars. I would recommend a stroll through, especially on a weekend when they shut the roads down. It is one big party with all the beautiful Ukrainians out having fun, with there families.
