Souvenirs and Shopping in Kiev
Modern fashion-conscious Kiev offers tourists a unique shopping experience. You will find excellent new shopping centres, bright modern department stores and traditional markets selling anything you can imagine. The shopping landscape in Kiev has changed beyond all recognition since the late 1990’s. Queuing for scarce basic products in old soviet stores has been replaced with the desire to own the latest designer labels and luxury brands. Kiev has shaken off its Soviet past and embraced the capitalist shopping lust to buy goods you cannot afford and shop for things you probably never needed.
