Old Squares Mar 13, 2017
You can see construction sites almost everywhere in Kiev now. Even in the Old City brand new apartment houses are being built and put into operation. I would not call those apartments very cheap. There are completed construction projects around Bessarabian Square at the end of Khreshchatyk, the central street. Now there is a real underground city under this square, it is called "Metrograd".

Bessarabian Square is an old city square located between several streets: Khreshchatyk, Basseyna Street, Velyka Vassylkivska Street, Shevchenko Boulevard and Steep Descent.

There was a post station in this square two hundred years ago. The square was called Bessarabian because many farmers from southern Black Sea provinces used to trade at the market located here.

The present market building is one of the oldest in the city. It was built in 1912.
