Volodymyrska Street located near the main sights of the city but at certain distance from the noisy highways has always been attracting those wishing to live in the centre but not in plain sight. Businessmen, politicians, diplomatic officials who do not want to attract excessive attention settle here. Precisely here SAGA Development builds RESIDENT Concept House Residential Complex, which is the only new building on Volodymyrska Street, combining aristocratism and unostentatious luxury.
We decided to find out how the Resident, a person living just in the centre of Kyiv, spends his day.
Breakfast in “Three forks” restaurant
Successful day starts with tasty breakfast. In the respectable public place, such as “Three forks”, located in close vicinity of the RESIDENT Concept House at the address: 76, Volodymyrska Street, a Resident may choose by preference one of several options of breakfasts: nutritious breakfast “Three forks”, breakfast in Ukrainian style, breakfast “Asian morning” or continental breakfast.
Walk in Shevchenko park
When a person lives just in the centre and everything is located within walking distance, there is time for a morning walk. Within 10 minutes of walking distance a Resident will reach one of the oldest parks of Kyiv. It was opened in 1860 and was named “Universytetskyi skver” (University public garden). The former name is wholly understandable since the park is located opposite to the main building of Kyiv University called by the residents of Kyiv “Krasnyi Univer” (Red Uni).
Business meeting in Premier Palace Hotel
After walking through the park a Resident goes down to Bessarabska Square and after several minutes reaches the hotel opened in 1909. The Premier Palace became the first five-star hotel in Kyiv, when it was opened after reconstruction in 2002. Today it makes the international list “The most famous hotels of the world”. Foreign guests settle here and, if necessary, may comfortably hold a business meeting here.
Visit to St. Volodymyr`s Cathedral
In order to show the foreign partners one of the main sights, a Resident offers them to walk to the St. Volodymyr`s Cathedral. Construction of this unique significant architecture was finished at the end of the 19th century and its walls were painted by such legendary painters like Vasnetsov, Vrubel and Nesterov.
Lunch in “Steakhouse” restaurant
Kyiv offspring of Odessa restaurant-keeper Savva Libkin attracted attention of city public at once, and a Resident was not an exclusion. This restaurant disguised as butchery specializes in cooking steaks from matured Ukrainian meat.
The creator of interior, famous Odessa architect Denis Belenko, is proud that oak beams used in restoration of the dining rooms are more than two hundred years.
Street concert in a public garden near the Golden Gate
While walking around after dinner, a Resident takes a seat on a bench in Golden Gate public garden. Here you may always listen to the performances of street musicians and watch tourists taking photos near the monument to Panteleymon cat. Also you may admire majestic silhouette of the Golden Gate built in the 11th century and restored in 1982.
Attending the National Opera House
After a walk a Resident comes back home to the RESIDENT Concept House in order the change clothes before visiting the Opera House.
He reaches a building of the Opera House after 15-minutes walk and waits several minutes more for his lady before entrance. For sure, he took care of the tickets in advance: full house is a usual event here.
Supper in Catch restaurant
After watching opera, a Resident and his lady share impressions with each other while walking along Volodymyrska Street sideways to Andriivskyi Descent. They reach Catch restaurant, a new offspring of the La Familia family restaurants, in 10 minutes.
This luxurious restaurant specializing in cooking fish and seafood fits perfectly for romantic dinner. A day of a Resident is not over yet but we will leave him alone with his lady.
