Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) is the central square of Kyiv. In January and February 2014, it was the place of armed clashes between security forces and Euromaidan activists which led to the change of power and the formation of a new Ukrainian government.

And this is how this place looks a few months later. The barricades and tents have been removed and the square looks almost the same as it was before these historical events. Photos by Oleg Stelmakh

Kyiv is the capital and largest city of Ukraine standing on the Dnieper River in the north of the central part of the country. It is the seventh most populous city in Europe.

One of the features of Kyiv is a large amount of greenery. It may even seem that these are not the city’s parks, but the city itself is located in the middle of a huge park. See for yourself! Photos by Alexander Cheban
