At the intersection of Tereshchenkivska Street and Taras Shevchenko Boulevard in Kyiv, you can find several beautiful buildings with rich histories.

Taras Shevchenko Boulevard, named after the prominent Ukrainian poet, writer, and artist Taras Shevchenko, is a major thoroughfare in Kyiv, lined with trees and historic buildings. The boulevard is home to many important institutions, such as the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, the National Opera of Ukraine, and the St. Volodymyr's Cathedral.

The Tereshchenko family, after whom Tereshchenkivska Street is named, were influential Ukrainian industrialists, philanthropists, and art patrons in the 19th and early 20th centuries. They significantly contributed to the development of Kyiv and other Ukrainian cities by supporting the establishment of educational institutions, museums, and hospitals.

Another beautiful building nearby is the National Museum of Literature of Ukraine, located in a historic mansion that once belonged to the Tereshchenko family. The museum showcases the literary history of Ukraine and the works of its most famous writers.

Winter walk in Kyiv of Dec 15, 2018

Winter in the Shevchenkivskyi district of Kyiv is a beautiful sight. When the trees are covered in snow, the streets look incredibly cosy and charming. Many cafes and restaurants in the area are decorated in winter themes with garlands and Christmas decorations, creating a festive and relaxed atmosphere.

The Shevchenkivskyi district in Kyiv is named after the great Ukrainian poet, writer, translator, and public figure Taras Shevchenko. Taras Shevchenko was born in 1814 in the village of Moryntsi near Kyiv.

The Shevchenkivskyi district in Kyiv was formed due to an administrative and territorial reform of the city in 1939. When it was created, the district's territory was part of other historic districts in the town that had changed over time. For example, the Bessarabka district was founded in the 1830s, and the Lukyanivka district was founded in the 1860s.

Before the formation of the Shevchenkivskyi district, the territory of Kyiv that now comprises the district had various names, depending on the area. For example, the part of the district near the Universitat metro station was called Kudryavets. In contrast, the part where the Pechersk Residential Complex is located is known as the Botanical Garden.
