The main square, the most popular and visited place in Kiev among tourists and residents and of course a direct participant of such iconic and well-known far beyond Ukraine events as "Ukraine without Kuchma" in 2000, the "Orange revolution" in 2004 and "Euromaidan" in 2013.

In 1944, the Independence Square was decided to take the role of the main square of Kiev. All the buildings here were built between 1950 and 1970-ies. In the early 2000s, the area underwent serious reconstruction: here were established many monuments, fountains and sculptures. In the heart of Independence square, a tall column on which stands a statue of Berehynia (the image of a girl who acted according to the legends against paganism), which is holding a branch of viburnum.

Following buildings located on the Maidan Nezalezhnosti:

  • Hotel "Ukraine"
  • The October Palace
  • The House Of Trade Unions
  • Main Post office
  • Kiev State Conservatory

Below the square is an underground shopping complex "Globus".

If you are in Kiev, visit Maidan Square. There are so many things to see. There is a great mall, good food, history, and, most moving of all, tribute to those who fell in the 2013 demonstrations. There is a great deal to see here and you haven't really been to Kiev without visiting here.

An inspiring place for many people in the world and many countries. This is where history has been made. This is where people fought against the russian imperialism, I will give it another star when they will fight against the american and the european imperialism and claim 100% of their independance.
