maidan nezalezhnosti kievMAIDAN NEZALEZHNOSTI & HEROIV NEBESNOI SOTNI ALLEY

On the Maidan (Independence Square), you will find the main post office and a column with a globe on it that points to all of the main cities in Ukraine and across the street — the Independence Monument

Maidan Nezalezhnosti and the Heroiv Nebesnoi Sotni Alley are not only places in which to gather and to go for leisurely walks. These two sites have witnessed major events in Kyiv’s political and social life. Maidan was the center of the Orange Revolution in 2004 and of the Euromaidan in 2013-2014. During the Euromaidan, the country’s central square was a country within a country. At one point, it was a thriving tent city that included tents with food, heaters and hot tea. The headquarters and the main kitchen were located under the monument.

The name Heroiv Nebesnoi Sotni (Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred) reminds us of the tragic events of 2014, where special police forces shot and killed Euromaidan activists. Over 100 people died, and the street (formerly Instytutska) has been renamed Heroiv Nebesnoi Sotni Alley, a place of mourning and commemoration.
