The most mysterious place in Kyiv, generating many legends and rumors. According to one of them, there is a gateway to other worlds in the mountain. Long ago, ancient priests performed their rituals and later orthodox monks passed tests there. In the 18th century, Bald Mountain was turned into a military fortress with a complex and intricate system of underground passages. The story of that time says that guards on duty received an instruction not to be afraid of obscure noises coming from the depths of the mountain… What secrets does Bald Mountain keep?
As one of the Kyiv legends says, everyone who comes to the Green Theater should greet the Boss who is the main city poltergeist. It lives somewhere on the nine levels of underground galleries that were built in the times of Kievan Rus. Today, the Green Theater is popular with mystics and Satanists. Why? You will find it out during our tour.
The most popular Kyiv street attracting tourists is also the most mystical one. On our tour you will learn its secrets: why Andreevsky Descent
was called the passage between the worlds, what ghosts live in the Richard Castle, what happened on the Castle Hill and why the local places attracted Kyiv witches.
Having reached the top of Andreevsky Descent you will stop at the place where Kyiv was founded, then pass over the mysterious Kozhemyaki tract and get to the place where witches gather… to drink a magic potion. 13 ritual cocktails, magic coffee and dishes prepared according to secret recipes of Kyiv witches are on the menu.

We had an amazing trip to Kyiv thanks to Wonders & Holidays team. This place is not to be missed- it’s magical we will be back! We had such a great driver Vladimir who knew exactly how best to navigate around Kiev with fantastic local knowledge. And Daria our guide was exceptional speaking multiple languages and making our trip interesting and fun. And big thanks to Nick who put this tailored made programme for us the way we wanted and accommodated us on every wish we made to be fit for a little child. We have amazing memories of our 3 days in Kiev! Thank you!
We did the beer tour in Kiev. Five beers in five different bars for two of us and our guide. That was a great chance to hang out with some locals, get to know the history and city a bit more, all while enjoying some of the unique local beers you can only find in Kiev. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great company and we had a fantastic evening! Highly recommended!
Highly recommend taking a tour with Wonders & Holidays. I learned so much about Ukrainian history that I wouldn't have on my own and the tour guides feel like friends (rather than just guides). I went on the Kiev in 180 minutes sightseeing tour with Igor and it was such a great experience. He was an excellent guide not only did he explain the history so well, but also answered any related or unrelated questions about Kiev and Ukraine. Both Igor and our driver Gestutas were so personable, accommodating, kind and professional - I hope I get the chance to go back again to take another tour with them.
