The First Ukrainian Mobile Information Centre for Tourists

The First Ukrainian Mobile Tourist Information Centre began operating on Thursday 23rd June in Kyiv.


The company Open Kiev launched the project within the framework of a social programme to develop tourism infrastructure in the capital, supported by the Tourist Information Centre on Khreshchatyk. The main task is to test a model of small information centres on the eve of the European Football Championship - EURO 2012.

“We believe that such centres have a great future,” said the General Director of Open Kiev Nataliya Utkina. “Firstly, they enhance Kyiv’s tourist appeal. Secondly, they are mobile and can change their location easily depending on tourist flows and seasons. And thirdly, the information centres are not costly, as there is no need to pay rent, utilities and other usual regular bills.”

The first Mobile Information Centre is located on Khreshchatyk, 7. They plan to open two more mobile information centres near St. Sophia’s Cathedral and the Kyiv-Pechers’ka Lavra. They will operate every day from 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.

“Tourists like our centre. They are pleased with the maps that we provide free of charge. We tell them about the attractions and museums they can visit, as well as cultural events in the capital,” said Fyodor, an employee for the Information Centre on Khreshchatyk.

The Information Centre on Khreshchatyk is a centre created to provide visitors to the city with tourist information, where everybody can have a free map or a guide, as well as join the free guided tours.

The Info Centre is open every day from 10.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m.
