Every year before Eurovision rolls around we like to compile a useful guide to the host city for visiting music fans. One of the best aspects of the Eurovision Song Contest is that the winning country and host nation – usually – changes year-on-year, offering a new destination to discover each May. Last year’s post on Stockholm got a fantastic reception and when Ukraine won we couldn’t wait to explore the country.
This year we couldn’t make it to Kyiv, Eurovision 2017 host city, for a recce trip before Eurovision itself but we’ve enlisted the help of two local bloggers and tour guides Amy of The Wayfarer’s Book and Sviatoslava of Kyiv Friendly Tours. Here, we’ve got all the information you’ll need to know about visiting Kyiv for Eurovision – where to eat, what to see and do, and how to get around!
