What to expect

Discover the most interesting and significant facts about the history of the Jewish community in Kyiv on a 3-hour guided tour with a private vehicle. Visit all the main sites and landmarks, related to the Jewish heritage in Kyiv and learn about the prominent Jews who lived and worked in the city.

It’s hard to overestimate the role of the Jewish community in the different spheres of the capital’s life throughout the centuries. The periods of restrictions and persecutions of Jews were replaced by the loyalty periods, and by the end of the 19th century, Jewish bankers and entrepreneurs, artists and engineers have made a great contribution into the development of the city.

Downtown you will discover beautiful samples of fine mansions of the 19-20th centuries, built for Jewish merchants and businessmen. In the Jewish quarter, you will see the central Brodsky Choral Synagogue and learn its secrets.

Then you will glance at the Bessarabsky indoor market, presented to the city by Lazar Brodsky more than 100 years ago. After that, your guide will show you the house, where the prime minister of Israel Golda Meir was born. Moreover, you will discover Sholem Aleichem Monument and find out interesting facts from his biography.

This tour won’t be complete without uncovering the tragic pages of the history of Babi Yar, where over 150.000 Jews were killed during World War II. You will discover Memorials dedicated to the victims of that terrible massacre and your guide will tell you striking facts about it.

You will get a complete picture of the history of the Jewish community in Kyiv after this tour. In the end, your private driver will drop you off at your hotel.
