    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Babi Yar Memorial, Oleny Telihy Street, Kiev Ukraine

    You will visit Babi Yar, where over 150 000 Jews were killed during World War ll. You will learn how they came there with children, old parents, and all their things hoping to be transferred to peaceful lands. You will hear the stories about few of them who survived.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Brodsky Synagogue, Rustaveli Shota vul. 13, Kiev 01001 Ukraine

    In the downtown, visit some locations with beautiful samples of fine mansions from the 19th and 20th centuries, constructed by the Jewish rich men. In the Jewish quarter you will visit the central Brodsky Choral Synagogue and learn its secrets.

    Duration: 30 minutes

    Pass By: Sholem Aleichem Museum, 5 Chervonoarmiyska Street, Kiev Ukraine

    During the centuries-old history of the Jewish community in Kiev, the periods of restrictions and persecutions of Jews were replaced by the loyalty periods, and by the end of the 19th century, the influence and value of the Jewish bankers and engineers, architects and businessmen became so great that the city authorities had to reckon with them.

    On this excursion, you will have an opportunity look behind the curtain at the Jewish world, full of secrets and riddles. Learn the most interesting facts about the Jewish community of the different historical periods: about achievements and contributions they made into the development of the city and about those tragic pages that were like a horrible nightmare for Jews.

    Pass By: Green Tour Ukraine, Chernogorskaya st. 17/14, Kiev 01103 Ukraine
