Hi, my dear friend!
I was glad to get your letter because I am interested in the history of your country and its historical places very much. And this time it is my turn to share the information I have about our historical places. I want to start with the main square of Kyiv and its places of interest.
Maidan Nezalezhnosti is the main square of the capital of Ukraine. Maidan Nezalezhnosti got its name when Ukraine was declared independent’in 1991. The Monument to the Independence of Ukraine (the white column, with the statue of the Ukrainian girl on the top) tells the Kyivites and the guests about this historical event.
Maidan Nezalezhnosti stands out as the most attractive square in Kyiv because it has wide grass-covered areas, fountains and magnificent historical buildings. A model of the old Polish Gate (Liadski Vorota) in Maidan Nezalezhnosti reminds of the historical past.
The monument to the legendary founders of Kyiv, the Statue to the Patron Saint Archangel Michael, trade centre «Globus» in Maidan Nezalezhnosti are of special interest to the visitors. Maidan Nezalezhnosti is especially solemn on holidays because it is the heart of Kyiv, a lot of people go there to watch concerts of celebrities and observe firework displays.
I hope this information will be of great interest for you. Next time I will write about other places of interest of our capital.
