Introducing Kiev

Kiev (Ukrainian: Київ) is the capital and largest city of Ukraine with - officially - approximately 3 million inhabitants (unofficially up to 4 million inhabitants). The city was founded on the banks of Dnipro River. The transliteration of the city's name from Ukrainian is "Kiev", and this variation is used in official English language materials in Ukraine, major English-speaking countries and international organizations. City's name spelling is a sensitive political topic for many Ukrainians, since outdated "Kiev" spelling is based on the Russian transliteration that was prevalent during the Soviet occupation and therefore reminds of Russian influence over Ukraine. It's recommended to use Kyiv when in Ukraine not to hurt anybody's feelings. Same applies for using "Ukraine" instead of outdated "the Ukraine".

Club & Bars
Nice place, friendly staff, good music, a lot of dancing, a little of singing. Reasonable price. Lots of beautiful ladies in one place at one time. Karaoke is good, except they only allow 1 song per table and there are lots of tables, so maybe you only get to sing once every 30-40 minutes. Address...
Nightlife & Bars
Cosy bar so it's easy to meet people. A bit expensive but the bartenders know their stuff. Smoking inside can be a bit annoying but isn't do bad with the windows open Address : Арена Сіті, вул. Велика Васильківська, 5, Kyiv, 02000
