"City's Main Avenue"

Kiev's central street, a time-beaten thoroughfare pulsing with an aura of history and hope, cuts through the famous Maidan Nezalezhnosti. Destroyed first by heavy mining by the Red Army, and then by Germans during World War II, this street received a dramatic facelift shortly thereafter. A troupe of Stalinist buildings deftly arose on the city's horizon, several stippling a major part of Khreshchatyk street. While some succumbed to the vicissitudes of time, others survived its tyranny, including the City Council House or the Kyivrada, and the Post Office. This historic street also operated as one of the first stations to be launched under the Kiev Metro. Over the years, the street came to be recognized as a busy shopping hub in the city, bolstered by the arsenal of shopping malls and stores that dot its flanks.
