When it comes to art, Kyiv has much to offer for art lovers besides its Kievan Rus heritage and treasures. Yes, we are talking about modern art and the celebrated murals which decorate the various buildings, streets and squares of the sprawling Ukrainian capital.
When in Kyiv do not miss the opportunity to check out the various murals decorating the city and depicting the art work of many artists. Kyiv has become into an open air art museum with a myriad of fresco wall paintings spread all over the city.
Each fresco and painting has a story and meaning behind it. I must say that the Kyiv murals are a feast for your eyes if you appreciate art! Yes we are talking none other than Kyiv’s unique urban culture.
