I now have finally found the place in life that I am comfortable with! I became dizzy and almost fell in Independance Square, and then had an extremely powerful almost spiritual experience, a deja vu, I felt the place was familiar, I had been there before! I know my way around and I had very much felt as if I had: finally found my real “home.” The most difficult part was leaving. I am now living in the USA and I am terribly uncomfortable living there! I was so impressed with the togetherness of the Ukrainian and Russian Culture! I did not want to leave, I left to a lonely and desolate life here. I am miserable again, this is not a home! Leaving Kiev in November of 2006 have put tears into my eyes that have not yet dried now at the end of February 2007! I hope I live long enough to tell about future travels for the USA infrastructure is for killing the spirit of a person!over 6 years ago

I was born In Kiev, and lived there for thirteen years of my life. I adore my city, and love the culture. I wold not recommed living there, but visit, absolutely! The nature is so beutiful. I would also recomend visiting a small city in Ukraine, aside from Kiev, because you will see the most beutiful scenary ever. Kiev is full of historical buildings, and gorgeous churches. So, if you are a religious person, or just someone who likes to be connected to his/her inner self, i would recommend going. Also, if you can, go see Kiev’s ballet and visit all the musiems that you can. Art culture(in my opinion) is very different, and has a very strong sence of high perfection that will leave you inspired no matter what.over 6 years ago
