The InterContinental Hotel is in The Heart of Kiev While waiting for a private tour guide booked through to visit Babi Yar, Steve and I took a fast walk outside the InterContinental Hotel to gawk at the amazingly beautiful St. Michael's and St. Sophia's Churches. Aren't those golden domes something else?The focus of this visit to Ukraine was to take a Viking River Cruise down the Dnieper River from Kiev to Odessa. Many tours are included in the cruise price, including a city tour of Kiev. When Kievcitytours guide Valentina arrived at the hotel, she insisted on sharing more information about these two important churches.If you can afford a five-star hotel with breakfasts that cost 40 Euros a person (we ate cookies and used the coffeemaker in the room rather than pay 80 Euros for breakfast, for goodness sakes), stay at the InterContinental. How could you find a better hotel location?
