Andriyivsky Uzviz, Kiev: 17 reviews and 49 photos
St.Andrew's Descent (it sounds as ?Andriyivsky Uzviz? in Ukrainian) is one of the most ancient and steep street in Kiev.
St.Andrew?s Descent is called after Apostle St.Andrew who, according to ancient chronicles, sailed up the River Dnipro from the Black Sea and predicted there would be a huge city on the hills that he saw sailing along the Dnipro.
St.Andrew?s Descent runs along St.Andrew?s Hill from St.Vladimir Street to Contract Square and has always been the shortest way from Upper Kiev to Lower Kiev.
This street has been known since 1740.
Fairs, festivals and concerts are often held there, especially on the last weekend in May when the Kievites observe their City Days.
It?s the best place for shopping for Ukrainian and Russian souvenirs.
There are splendid art galleries, museums, cafes and restaurants in that street.
Address: St.Andrew Descent
