Despite being the capital of Ukraine, Kyiv (Kiev) is one of Eastern Europe’s lesser-known city breaks. Many pass through on their way to visit Chernobyl – but it really is worth exploring the city itself, packed with glittering Orthodox churches and old USSR monuments. Kyiv’s picturesque setting on the Dnieper River and the chance to sample hot vareniki (dumplings) draw visitors year round. Here’s our pick of the best places to stay on a trip to Kyiv.

Opera Hotel
