In my opinion Mysteskyi Arsenal is the most beautiful place in the city that hosts different kinds of events. It is located in the former Arsenal building, a monument of national importance, built in 1783-1801 as a part of the Old Pechersk fortress.
The key initiatives of Art Arsenal are the annual international projects Art Kyiv Contemporary (that’s my favorite), Book Arsenal, Great Antique Salon and Great Sculpture Exhibition. Also it hosts a local fashion week, different art exhibitions and presentations, installations, Christmas and Charity Fairs etc.
The building itself is impressively huge, so it makes all the possible dreams of event organizers and visitors come true. There is an open air area as well; when the weather conditions are friendly often there are some bars and even live music or DJs. The entrance prices vary, sometimes it’s free, sometimes there is a fee, I kindly advise you to check the schedule either on the website or on Facebook to make sure that the current event is interesting for you.
