Shopping in Kiev

Glitzy malls have transformed Kiev's shopping scene, but old-school style and service live on at TsUM department store, a Soviet monolith. A short walk away, Kreshchatyk is still the main shopping street with a warren of fashion and brand concessions under Maidan Nezalezhnosti. Souvenirs, antiques and art galleries can be found in the tiny boutiques lining Andriyivskiy Uzviz, and flowers and local delicacies at the Bessarabsky Market. Most shops open 10am-9pm daily.

TsUM

Shopping Soviet style

Located off central Kreshchatyk Street, TsUM (the former Tsentralny Univermag, or central department store) retains its Soviet atmosphere despite rows of western concessions. An architectural landmark, originally built by Constructivist Alexei Shchusev in 1936, the Kreshchatyk-facing side was rebuilt in 1960.
