"Where once there was a glorious entrance to medieval Kyiv, now you’ll find a fascinating neighbourhood that oozes energy and creativity. Reitarska, Yaroslaviv Val, Striletska and Honchara streets, right in the heart of Old Kyiv, are changing with meteor speed. The area around the Zoloti Volota (‘Golden Gates’ in Ukrainian) now overflows with fancy bars, bombastic street art, hidden coffee shops, designer boutiques and nostalgia-fuelled pie spots. New openings, a strong sense of community that emphasises heritage preservation and unconventional green spaces like the Square of Kyiv Intellectuals all make the Zoloti Vorota neighbourhood the go-to place to experience the forward-looking face of Kyiv (and taste it too)", reads the article on the British website.
In this particular ranking, the Ukrainian location surpassed some of the world's famous neighborhoords, such as Noord (Amsterdam), Villeray (Montreal) and Surry Hills (Sydney).
