About the place

An artist’s alley in Kiev connects St. Andrew’s Descent and Vladimirskaya Gorka, passing from the funicular line at its upper station along the hill on which St. Andrew’s Church is built.

They already managed to call this place “Kiev Montmartre” (Hill and the highest point of Paris. At the end of the 19th century, Renoir, Van Gogh, Apollinaire lived and worked here, and a little later - Picasso, Modigliani and others. There were meetings of Parisian bohemia).

Since 1984, the celebration of Kiev Day has been closely connected with St. Andrew's Descent, when the vernissage was held - an exhibition and sale of paintings, and since then this place has become the center of the holiday and the creative center of the city - a gathering place for artists, poets and the general intelligentsia in general.

Here, all artists from St. Andrew's Descent, Kiev and Ukraine can sell their paintings. For them organized places for sale, equipped with awnings, vertical bars for attaching paintings and small seats. Metal boxes stylized as benches are designed to store goods.

The updated alley of artists was solemnly opened on June 1, 2019. Its active reconstruction lasted from the beginning of the year. During this time, they replaced the lighting, equipped wooden paving, surveillance cameras and a wi-fi zone, made railings with lights, the same as on the stairs leading to the Landscape Alley, and improved the territory.

One of my favorite places after it underwent reconstruction. Lots of people promenade here, now it is connected to the People's Friendship Arch. And as it is Artists' Alley, you can buy lots of various paintings here, created in different styles and with different techniques. You can go to D12 from here too, and they sell coffee and beverages right on the street even when the market is closed. Not a long time ago they built a staircase from here to St. Andrew's Church so you can go there easier.
