This square is the center of the city and where you can find all kinds of shops, travel agencies, banks, etc.
During the Orange Revolution of late 2004, Maidan Nezalezhnosti received worldwide media coverage, when hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered in the square and in nearby streets.
Even after the Orange Revolution, Maidan Nezalezhnosti continues to attract political protesters. But in no case have they approached the magnitude of the Orange Revolution's protests.

Unmissable place to visit in Kiev, it is the most central square in the city, where people gather in times of political unrest to protest and express their views. It is very wide and airy, a good place to also spot some local action.

First to Review

Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Ukrainian: Майдан Незалежності, literally: Independence Square) is the central square of Kiev, the capital city of Ukraine. One of the main city squares, it is located on the Khreschatyk Street. The square has been known under many different names, but it became known simply as the Maidan due to the political events that took place there in 2004 after the Ukrainian accession to independence.

Γνωστή και ώς Maidan, είναι μία από τις μεγαλύτερες πλατείες του Κιέβου, η οποία βρίσκεται στην Khreshchatyk street. Η πιο πολυσύχναστη πλατεία της πόλης και ταυτόχρονα από τις πιο όμορφες, διαθέτει συντριβάνια και ένα ψηλό στύλο που στην κορυφή του έχει ένα γλυπτό, με ένα κορίτσι να φοράει την εθνική φορεσιά της Ουκρανίας, κρατώντας ένα κλαδί από κράνμπερι, το οποίο συμβολίζει την ανεξαρτησία των ουκρανών. Μία πανέμορφη, σύγχρονη πλατεία.

La Piazza Maydan, piazza dell'Indipendenza, è il luogo probabilmente più conosciuto di Kiev. Teatro purtroppo di cronaca recente come epicentro della rivoluzione arancione e la guerra civile poi. E' una piazza enorme, che oltre a monumenti storici, ospita diversi caffè e ristoranti.
