Kyiv took 87th place in the ranking of World's Best Cities. Last year Ukraine's capital took 139th place in this rating. The top three leaders include London, New York and Paris. The British capital tops the ranking for the sixth consecutive year.
"Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, may not be the first European capital that pops to mind, but it’s one of the most distinct. The city—a 1,500-year-old living encyclopedia of Slavic history—is as colorful and vibrant as its nation’s flag, with buildings painted like Ukrainian Easter eggs and the skyline topped with gold domes gleaming up the hills from the Dnieper River. It all somehow makes the winters tolerable as much as does the self-deprecation and bonhomie of Kiev’s spirited locals," the experts inform.
