2012, SEPTEMBER 19: UKRAINE, YALTA TO KIEV
We arrived at Simferopol airport two-hour early for our 4:20 p.m. flight. After waiting there for a long time, we discovered that the flight had been delayed. As usual passengers standing in the line did not seem to care to find out the reason or duration of delay. An American gentleman in the line went to the main terminal to gather information, while I watched his luggage. Anyhow, after three-hour delay our flight left Simferopol.
The reception people were friendly and helpful. After check-in and dinner, we went to bed. We were looking forward to see the city sights next day.
Kiev is the capital as well as the largest city of Ukraine. It is colorful and vibrant in spite of the sheer brutality faced by its people through the various wars, revolts and revolutions that have crowded the millennial history of this one of the oldest city of Eastern Europe.
...beautiful parks and monuments.
...with attractive buildings.
