Kyiv is more than 15 centuries old, the “cradle of Slavic civilization”, yet remaining remarkably young in every facet of its life. A city of three and a half million people, Kyiv is certainly rich in unique architecture, historic locations and monuments, art masterpieces on display at its numerous museums, art galleries and exhibitions. You will have a chance to fall in love with St. Sophia’s, St. Volodymyr’s or St. Michael’s Cathedrals, see Andriyivskyi Descent, old streets of Podil district, lushly green slopes of the Dnipro river, visit wide city parks, National Opera and Maidan, which are all situated in the walking distance from the workshop venue.

There is another side of Kyiv – the modernity of the capital city of the nation looking forward to the future. Kyiv has changed and developed greatly in recent years. Besides being the national administrative and political, industrial and business, research and cultural centre, Kyiv is also one of the thriving focal points of international business and cooperation and an important connection hub right in the centre of Eastern Europe that links East and West.

Kyiv is served by daily international flights from the major European cities through Boryspil International Airport and Zhuliany Kyiv International Airport. There is a bus service but the taxi transfers from Boryspil and Zhuliany airports are the easiest means of travel to Kyiv and are cheap.
