Kiev Guide

When is the best time to visit Kiev?

March to May

Spring is a beautiful time of year to fly into Kyiv Boryspil International Airport (KBP). There are blooming flowers, and the weather is the perfect balance between not too hot or cold. It is still wise to pack a warm jacket before departing home on flights to Kiev as the temperature does drop a bit after sunset. Take advantage of the good weather by signing up for a walking tour or exploring the Kiev Botanical Gardens.

June to August

The summer months are a wonderful time to plan your tickets to Kiev around but it is the busiest season. There are a large number of festivals and events taking place, such as Constitution Day and Independence Day. If you want to soak up the warm weather and can tolerate larger crowds, don't leave your return flights to Kiev for the last minute. The sooner you book, the more likely you'll scoop up deals on airfare to Kiev.

September to November

Autumn is a quieter period for tourists to the city. After the summer crowds leave, you'll have the top attractions to yourself, and while temperatures start to cool, it's still pleasant to be outside. If you love the arts, autumn is the perfect period to buy cheap flights to Kiev as it marks the beginning of the city's theatre season.

December to February

Pack your warmest coat if you’re planning a trip to Kiev for the winter months. The city goes all out with festive decorations, making it an incredible destination if you want to use your flights to Kiev to celebrate Christmas abroad. You can work on your ice skating skills, go skiing in Protasov Yar, and even try winter fishing. When you need to warm up, you can visit Kiev's many museums or watch a theatre performance.

What's on in Kiev?

Atlas Weekend

Atlas Weekend is one of the biggest music festivals in Kiev. Taking place at the end of June, it features a dynamic line-up of artists from a range of genres such as rock, jazz and hip-hop. It’s well worth attending if you’re planning to buy flights to Kiev for a summer holiday. The event is held inside the Soviet exhibition complex and is close to a metro station, making it easy to get to and from. With an attendance of 500,000 people in 2019, you should book a hotel room as soon as you've bought your festival tickets.

Independence Day

On 24 August every year, the Ukraine comes together to celebrate its independence. It's one of the best events to time your flights to Kiev around if you want to learn about Ukraine's history and culture. The main event is a massive military parade through the city centre, but there are also cultural exhibitions and locals dressing up in traditional costumes.

Kiev Day

Kiev Day is an annual event held on the last weekend of May. Book your return flights to Kiev over the event and celebrate everything that makes Ukraine’s capital city unique. From the architecture to the work of local artists, attending the festivities is a great way to learn about the city's past and celebrate its culture. There are live concerts, art exhibitions, street performances and an impressive firework display at the end of the day.

Kiev Coffee Festival

Calling all coffee lovers! Book your return flights to Kiev so you can partake in the city's coffee festival. It's held at the Art-Zavod Platforma towards the end of April each year. You can spend the day watching latte art contests, sipping on free tastings and shopping for beans to take back home with you.

What are the best things to do in Kiev?

St.Sophia's Cathedral

St. Sophia's Cathedral is a top landmark in the city. It's one of the first places you should visit once you're settled in from your flights to Kiev. The ornate 11th-century church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its plaza plays host to various events and celebrations for Easter and Christmas. If you want to enter the grounds, there is a small 50 UAH ($2.99 AUD) entrance fee. Before leaving the church, climb to the top of the bell tower for a panoramic view over the city.

St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery

Once you've explored St. Sophia's Cathedral, walk down to St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery. While the Soviet Union destroyed the original in the 1930s, it was rebuilt in 2000. If you're buying flights to Kiev for the whole family, take the kids to the playground behind the monastery.

St. Andrew's Church

The last cathedral all visitors with tickets to Kiev should explore is St. Andrew's Church. Located in the neighbourhood of Podii, it's been a firm fixture of the city's skyline since the 1700s.
