The Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Kyiv (Церковь Святой Марии Магдалины) is an Orthodox church located at 36 Olesia Honchara Street in the Shevchenkivskyi district of Kyiv, Ukraine. It is dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene, one of the most prominent female figures in the New Testament. The church serves as a place of worship and spiritual gathering for the local community.

This courtyard, known as "Viktor Tsoi's Courtyard" (Дворик Виктора Цоя), is located near the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Kyiv. It is a popular spot among fans of Viktor Tsoi and has become a sort of informal memorial to the musician. The courtyard features various murals and graffiti dedicated to Tsoi, including his image, lyrics from his songs, and messages from fans.

Visitors to the courtyard often leave flowers, notes, and other tributes to the late musician, making it a unique and significant place for those who appreciate Tsoi's music and his impact on Soviet and post-Soviet culture.

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.
