Kyiv (Київ in Ukrainian, Kiev in Russian) is the capital and largest city of Ukraine. Kyiv is located in north central Ukraine. The Dnipro (Dnieper) river flows south through the city towards the Black Sea; in the west is the 'old city' of Pechersk, built on the hills overlooking the right bank, where the famous Lavra monastery is located. Also in the west are the city center, government buildings, embassies, theatres, and most local industrial complexes. On the east side of the river lie several residential areas, and the nearby Boryspil international airport. The city has a three line metro system (total length 54.8 km). On weekends, the streets of Khreschatyk (the center of the city) are closed to vehicular traffic, in favor of pedestrians. Visitors to Kyiv in May can catch the springtime festival.
