Andriyivskyi Uzviz, or Andrew's Descent, is one of the best known historic streets and tourist attractions in Kiev. It is often called the Montmartre of Kiev.

The first buildings were erected here in the 17th Century, and the first apartment blocks here date back to the 19th century. Famous buildings on the street, which winds up a steep hill, include the baroque St Andrew's Church, Mikhail Bulgakov's house, the Museum of One Street and the so-called 'Castle of Richard the Lionheart'. Also there are many small shops and stalls selling antiques and souvenirs.
