What should you visit
There are many places in Kiev that will allow you to spend time interestingly, relax and enjoy beautiful views. We advise you to include the following sights of the capital in your leisure program:
— Kitaevo or Kitaevskaya desert. Here, in the 18th century, a temple in the Ukrainian Baroque style appeared among the magnificent landscapes - the Trinity Church, which immediately began to attract Orthodox pilgrims. Today, the Trinity Kitaevsky Monastery operates here, which combines three churches, a 45-meter bell tower, a refectory, a cell, a fraternal building and a nursing home. The multi-level man-made caves in the Kitaevsky tract remain especially interesting for pilgrims and tourists. Their exact layout, length and complete map are still a mystery. Kitaevo has magical gardens with lush greenery, berry bushes and fruit trees, and the dense forest attracts with coolness and tranquility by the ponds.
— Oceanarium «Sea Fairy Tale», which will appeal to children and adults. Here you will see stingrays, moray eels, reef sharks, seahorses, jellyfish and many other underwater fauna. You can watch the large reef complex through the windows of a sunken ship, and in the Amazon hall you can watch live predatory piranhas. The tunnel at a depth of 2 meters is delightful, from which it is even more interesting to look at the colorful fish.
— Feofania Park. This is a huge park area with shady trees, fountains, gazebos, cobbled paths and ponds, near which it is cool even on hot days. This green area also houses a spiritual shrine, St. Panteleimon Monastery, built over 100 years ago. Currently Feofania is a park-monument of landscape gardening art. The Main Astronomical Observatory of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine is located nearby.

Where should I go nearby?
Near Kiev, in the village of Kopachev, a large-scale reconstruction of the medieval state of Kievan Rus has been completed. A defensive wall, an entrance gate with two towers, a special field for holding heroic tournaments were built here. There is also a princely chamber, a watchtower, a nomad camp and even a dwelling in which the people of Kiev lived in the 11-12 centuries.

SkyInterior on our sides SkyUp is one of the reasons why it is so pleasant and comfortable to fly with us. This is an integrated approach to the design of the aircraft cabin, which is based on the principles of ergonomics, rationalism and, of course, comfort.
The main and really impressive effect, which is noted by absolutely everything - is the multi-colored interior lighting, which is selected depending on the phase of flight. The colors change very smoothly within a few minutes and create an inconspicuous calming and relaxing effect during the flight.
In the night phase of the flight, the light is turned off; for comfort, only the pleasant blue Sky Skylight remains, which somewhat resembles the light of the moon. At dawn, when the time to wake up, the color of the backlight changes to orange-pink - the color of the rising sun.
