Mariyinsky Palace, Kiev: 7 reviews and 9 photos


Another of Bartolomeo Rastrelli's work, this is a beautiful blue & cream colored palace in a Ukrainian & Russian baroque style. I believe the president of Ukraine resides here, but it's closed to the public - no tours. There is a wonderful park along the perimeter of this building, and (depending on what time of year you go) i'm sure you'll see many new brides and grooms having wedding photos taken.

A note on the parks in Kiev: no matter where you go in Kiev you'll find a park to rest and relax or talk with your friends, or to reflect by yourself. Kiev is a city where you'll do a LOT of walking, so finding a park bench to relax for a minute is easy.
