Vozdvyzhenka: a gastronomic art district

It’s not just about affection for Kyiv. Dor over two years now we’ve had this Vozdvyzhenka district portal. Believe it or not – half of the houses here were empty not so long ago, and there were no street lights. Today Vozdvyzhenks is a modern district with own infrastructure. Our neighbors are show rooms of Ukrainian brands, advertisement agencies and educationsl platforms. It’s easy to plan your time here: we have restaurants, art galleries, sport centers, shops, cafes, the Babyrock kids’ creative space and lots of other facilities.  
On this web site we write about our neighbors and how to work and rest on Vozdvyzhenka:



Chicken Kyiv – a favourite tourists’’ meal

Sure, we all know about #salovarenykyborsht, but the first thing 90% of foreigners associate with Kyiv is a ckassic Chicken Kyiv.  Although Chicken Kyiv has become popular not long ago, in 1950-s, just having appeared on the menu of “Inturist”, it’s history started much earlier – with famous de volaille and à la Maréchal cutlets, that were forgotten during the World War I and the revolution. The great come back happened in the 30-s in one of the New York restaurants, whre the MFA cook made that very Chicken Kyiv for Ukrainian delegation. There are as much versions of Chicken Kyiv as legends related to it: the naked Chicken Kyiv (like one they make in Kanapa), one made of pheasant or pikeperch… But we still love classics: an ideal breading, liquid filling of melted butter with greenery, tender chicken breast – surely, served on truffle mash.

There it is in Chicken Kyiv for UAH 98. 


September weather broadcast: +20 till 20.09

Take the chance, as autumn feels warm. Summer terraces in Ronin still work at full power, greating new guests every day. There’s enough place for everyone. A cozy patio, summer garden, children’s playground and another terrace for special occasions are at your service.

What do you do in the garden? Walk barefoot on the grass, rest on soft poufs, watch the cook frying lobsters, chsohu rice, various antocuchos on teppan grill, drink cool prosecco, dance, breathe out, while the kids are playing at BABYROCK.
You can as well take your favourite Nikkei-rolls with shrimps or a classic Philadelphia  (248₴) with a glass of brut (39₴) – and let the night be tender.

If you’re looking for a quiet place downtown – Vozdvyzhenka is the one for you. There it seems like the city is far away.
The summer terrace of OXOTA NA OVETS offers Nikkei-rolls starting with UAH198, UAH 48 sushi, sashimi for UAH 149, tartars for UAH 139.
