In July 2007, the Ukrainians voted for their seven favourite historical and cultural sites. The sites were then given the status of being the “Seven Wonders of Ukraine”.
Ukraine is a large country of diverse natural beauty, rich in culture and with a long, interesting history!
Experts in various fields were asked to vote for their seven best sites, which were condensed into a list of 1,000 candidates. These were examined by a council of 100 experts and the list was narrowed down to 21. Then Internet users could cast their votes to make up the list of the Seven Wonders of Ukraine. The response from the public was very positive. About 77,000 internet users took part in the campaign.

The total length is about 58,7 km. There are 445 metro stations along with 3 points of interchange, where you can change from one line to another. There are approximately 664 metro wagons and 119 escalators.
Metro Tokens cost 2.00 Hryvnia. You can buy them in each Metro Station at the “Kassa” (Cashier) or from a wall mounted dispenser, usually located near the “Kassa”, which excepts ten Hryvnya bills. The tokens are blue.

Kiev (or Ukrainian) Tour Guides should assist the visitor in seeing the place in an excellent, unique way. Mostly all Tour Guides in Ukraine should see the career as being an international tour guide. After all, the type of visitor to the attraction or sight may be local, regional or international.
This is just a general idea worked out by our Kiev Tour Guide Group Travel2Ukraine of what a tour guide obligations and capabilities can be.
