Address: Bessarabskaya Square
For several decades the vast territory in the center of Kiev was on the decline, until at the end of the 1990s the construction of a modern shopping and recreation center was started. The old buildings were restored and the underground shopping area under Bessarabskaya Square and Bolshaya Vasilkovskaya Street was created.
The first customers walked around the cutting-edge shopping center in December, 2001, and a year later, in August, 2002, the solemn opening of the shopping center and the final completion of all construction works was celebrated.
The largest shopping and recreation center in Kiev was generously provided with the state-of-the-art equipment. The spacious and light halls became venue for all kind of stores, express-cafes, fast foods, restaurants, disco, slot machines halls and centers of consumer services. Many of the establishments work around the clock and welcome visitors at any time of the day and night.
The inner spaces are divided in quarters, and there are the gift quarter, the clothes and shoes quarter, the sport quarter, the book quarter, the boutique quarter, the service quarter, the furniture quarter, etc. This is very convenient, since you don't have to stroll around the many-leveled shopping center if you need an unusual present or sandals. The thematic grouping of the stores saves customers' time and provides pleasant impression of attentive care to each guest.
