Kiev

I have been to Kiev 4 times, and it was a city I fell in love with straight away. In the summer months it is a green city and one which has many views – because like some of my other favourite cities, it has lots of hills. A wonderful city to walk around (although it has a good metro system) with the wide blue Dnipr river running through it.
