Kyiv with coffee aroma 

 

Kyiv citizens used to love drink coffee, even more they were masters. The drink came through the famous Kontrakt. It could not be otherwise, at that time it was the most important "trading-business forum",the representatives from all south-western regions of the empire were gathering to attend above mentioned event. There could not be a good deal without perfect coffee. At the begining of the XX century coffee was taking the first place among drinks consumed by Kyiv citizens during not family gathering - it could be guest hosting or simple business meeting. For the ladies it was the great place to have meeting with friends, or for a romantic date, on the other side for gentlemen it was a wonderful place to spend time with the woman of their choice. Overall, in coffee shops were discussed issues starting from city gossips ending to revolutionary conspirasy. About history of coffee in Ukraine and Kyiv, about those great Kyiv coffee shops and all about traditions and recipes you would be able to learn during our tour with "coffee aroma". 

There will be coffee tasting during the tour.

WALKING THROUGH PODIL WIHT GLASS OF BEER

 

 

As usual, the first were the monks. Although the commoners were attached to the tasty and healthy activity. At the time of Yaroslav the Wise, beer was called malt, and everyone who could afford to maintain a brewery stared to brew. Traditions did not break even in the following centuries ,in Kiev in the 19th century, the number of such establishments grew steadily, and at the end of the century city was counting several dozens of beer production locations. Beer in all its forms confidently replaced vodka .So, what could possibly be the best recommendation for the popularity of the drink in this part of the world?

Today, Kiev beer is associated with the Obolon brand, named after the former suburban district. However, from Podil, on which we will walk with a glass of beer, this area is very close ... And why did we choose Podol for you? Because since ancient times city life “brewed, boiled and foamed” here, without interrupting for a century or a decade. Our ancestors were able to brighten up everyday life and decorate holidays with beer - and you will feel it.

Even more during the tour which will end with beer tasting in Podil Stylish pub.

TRADITIONS OF CONTEMPLATION AND A POETRY OF ROMANTIC WALKING

 

We are silent, but our hearts speak. And our souls perceive. Let's close our eyes ... And we will travel through time for a century ago - at the time when Bulgakov's “careless young generation” had been wondering around Kiev, and deep further into the centuries, into whirlwinds of balls and hussars, to the ceremonious world of merchant life, which exploded with violent manifestations of feelings.

“And the Dnepr! And sunsets! ”Love and beauty always prevailed on the Kiev hills. Parks and trails, trees and tracts of these places remember thousands of confessions and as much agony, minute insights and gusts of inspiration. The rustle of foliage keeps the oaths that connect someone's destiny. How many important and momentous decisions were made under the canopy of these lindens, chestnuts, oaks! Let's go through old alleys. They speak. They sigh. They remember ... 

 

We invite you on a romantic walk.
