Ukrainian capital

One of the oldest capitals in the world. Well, it's not Rome or Athens but it was settled in 482 A.D. officially, though most archeological finds suggest that it was earlier. Anyways, these were already posted in EE section, therefore this is for those who don't visit it.

Enjoy

I would say 10% of residential, old ( pre-20 century ) buildings.
