Stopping briefly at Peremohy Square to admire, not only the soviet architecture and war memorial obelisk, but also, the archaic above ground transit system, which seemed vaguely reminiscent of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty Four.
I continued on towards the city's Zoo Park and then across the street to visit the Museum and Political Institute of Ukraine
Reaching the hostel, after seven hours on foot, i decided a nap was in order before i eat and begin a night tour of some of the nearby monuments.
Dinner was at what would come to be "the usual place" and i inadvertently ordered some amazing perogies and a fried chicken breast.
I spent the night heading north from the hostel to visit the Tarasa Hryhorovycha Shevchenka park and the Opera House. Once reaching the point of dead camera batteries, i headed back and set the alarm for 6am, which would come to be the norm at the hostel as it was the best way to get a hot shower without waiting in line and the ability to brew a cup of coffee as strong as you'd like.
