Kiev is an ancient city that probably already existed in the 5th century. The city became the capital of Kyivan Rus and has held the status of the capital of Ukraine for nearly 30 years. This year Kiev entered the top 20 of the best cities for remote workK. and the first 100 of the greenest cities in the world. Of course, the rankings speak for themselves that the city’s infrastructure is developing and reaching a higher level.

In recent years, Kiev has changed and developed without losing its charm. Of course, the renovations and beautification of the city have recently begun, and you can see how the center is transforming. The summer block was not lazy and pleasant, especially for utility workers and builders, as it was the best time to repair the center without closing it. Three historic streets – Zolotovoritska, Pokrovska and Pushkinska – were rebuilt during the summer quarantine. According to Kiev Mayor Vitaly Klitschko, the concrete base of Pokrovska Street, which was last repaired more than 30 years ago, has been completely replaced with cobblestones, restoring the street to its historic look. On other central streets, in addition to the standard refurbishment, cycle paths have been added. Thus, more and more streets in the center of Kiev are becoming modern and comfortable. A special place for Kiev citizens and visitors to the city is Peizazhna Alley, a green island in the heart of Kiev, and another place that has been undergoing renovation since 2020. The workers have finished the first phase of reconstruction in August and those will continue in 2021.
