Kiev has many churches, on sunday we made a trip through Kiev, seeing the most important places.
Kiev has many large town squares, on the right the roof of a building is being reconstructed with a copper lining
In this area again a church, but also a market place that should remind people of the Paris Montmartre Area. Churches don't seem to match though.
We were early and the "artist" are still busy setting up their exhibitions
A rather new church on an unpredicted place somewhere behind the main road and houses. The children are singing songs to wecome the people that arrive. All of them seem to be quite religious.
As everywhere in the world, loads of souvenirs too.
Woodwork is quite popular on these markets, I wonder where them weapons in the front still can be used.
Not very busy yet
Eric the "Viking", left, has bought a t-shirt!
(Semi) Hand made embroidery is not such a best selling article in the early morning, so start with reading the newspaper.
Old Sovjet type stuff is still very popular, it now looks to warm for a hat, but in winter Kiev is rather cold with its landclimate type of whether.
Inside a church, no photo's allowed but taking photo's from my belly is alright, nobody notices
Hey mum, aren't we devoted!
This woman sells candles to light inside the church.
This is the outside of the church, many people are walking in and out

Again from the 9th floor, in an other direction, it is a huge town, some say 2,5-3 million people, others say up to 4 million people. A simple 3-4 room flat will cost $ 1.200 and a luxurous flat will easily cost $ 5.000.
Kiew seen from the 9th floor of our Hotel with the name Rus.
At the bar in hotel Rus, with Nick and his wife Sheila, not everybody wants to be photographed.
