“The Golden Gate” (1018-1024), the main gate of old Kyiv, is a monument of defense architecture and one of the oldest buildings of Eastern Europe, one of the symbols of the capital of Ukraine. The gate was named by analogy with the Golden Gate in Constantinople.

This building remained the gateway to Kyiv until the 18th century, although over time it fell into disrepair. In 1832, the first measures were taken to preserve the Golden Gate. In 1982, to celebrate the 1500th anniversary of Kyiv, the Golden Gate was completely reconstructed. In 2007, the latest reconstruction was completed. <a target=_blank
