Although no one passes through it any more, Golden Gate stands as the remaining historical gateway to an ancient fortress, representing one of the main landmarks of the city. Dating back to 1017, the 12 m (39 ft) tall structure served as an honorary entrance for the wealthy, city politicians, and ambassadors from abroad. Although severely damaged in Mongol attacks of 1240, the gate represented the city's gala entrance until the mid-18th century. Most of the ruined part was excavated in 1832 and reattached. Pay particular attention to the top of the monument--it houses the Church of the Annunciation. If you wish, you can visit the national museum within the gate.

  • Really nice and sympathetic reconstruction of an ancient artefact. Very cheap ticket, simple self directed tour throughout the building. Probably about 30 mins max but worth the investment if you are....  more

  • A historical and must see place when you are walking around in Kiev.
  • It was a part of Kiev protection wall (fortress) Nice place located at the middle of the city, near embassies of European Union countries like Poland, France, Italy and ... . people always selling flowers in front of the entrance. Mcdonald's is also can be reached with a 5 minute walk. Don't know if it is always open or not but plan to visit it at least once; may be on the way home.
