Chernigov (also called Chernihiv) is often referred to as Ukraine's open-air museum. The whole of this lovely town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Much of the city is intact (spared from the construction of blocky Soviet-era buildings), and it dazzles with its array of churches, monasteries, golden cupolas and tree-lined streets. There is a cave monastery, a cathedral, and many buildings that date from the 17th and 18th centuries.
Visiting the town makes a nice day trip from Kiev (it's a two-hour trip on a high-speed train), but there are many small hotels and restaurants that will entice you to spend a day or two.
