The picturesque street is named after the beloved Poet Alexander Pushkin. Pushkinska Street, or alternately Pushkinskaya Street, has retained a lot of the charm that it had 100 years ago, mixed with the bustling business of Kiev’s downtown. Many Russian and Ukrainian cities have a Pushkinska street. Due to the influx of tourism and business to the city, Pushkinskya Street has become one of the busier streets in Downtown Kiev. Some of the most luxurious apartments, hotels and restaurants are prominently located on Pushkinska Street including the Premier Palace Hotel and Sumosan Restaurant. Vinnytsya, Pushkin Street № 38.

Many people think that is not interesting to live in a small town because there are not so many places to visit but, believe me, small towns have their own charm. I can spend hours strolling along them, I disparately love these narrow and meandering streets, small houses, I like to observe lighted widows that hide the private life of people behind the curtains.   Whenever I notice that the sun is drooping, I hurry to the very center of my town to watch the sunset. Here am I, standing on the bridge, against the ginger sunlight, breathing with damp river air, feeling the wind touching my hair. The feeling of beauty carries me away, and I feel happy that I’m alive, that I’m able to see this beauty. I feel endless streams of consciousness that capture me and melt into eternity. So if you ever walk by, just stop for a moment on the bridge, near the forged gate and say ‘good bye’ to the setting sun to meet it with new spirits and enjoy its warmth tomorrow.

It is so peaceful, no noise of the city… no one for miles and miles. Just a light whisper of the wind, that casts a spell over the breath, can be heard. There is nothing in the world as beautiful as the sun sliding into the sea. Then as the star of day is hiding beyond the horizon, it takes up the deep reddish shade. The colour is so dense as if it is blinking in the liquid gold. The sunset suddenly becomes vermilion and all covers with slightly detected flashes of fire just for a very short time.   It is the colour of the sea sunset, it is the colour of the ecstasy, of the hope and dream. They are different every time, and the breath is all the time taken away because of it’s beauty.   You will be missing these sunsets if you see them just one time. They will be always in your heart. You will be missing the lapping of the waves, and the never repeating pattern of the snow-white ridges of waves; you will have a tedious time for the quiet drowsy hissing of the ebb, you will miss the dark purple blue velvet of the night sky, studded with huge and blinding stars. I want to find and devise the new words for making the declaration of love to this eternal beauty again and again.

Restaurant Dejavyu We would like to introduce you with a very nice place where you can relax, try Ukrainian food and spend wonderful time with your friends. Our suggestion is Restaurant Dejavyu in Nikolaev. Let us start by staying that from the moment you will walk through the door you know you are in for a treat. Coming from America you will be pleasantly surprised to have an attendant take your coat while the more than attentive hostess will seat you. You will be more than amazed at the collection of "Cold War Era" memorabilia. It is so interesting to be able to see what folks on the other side of "The Fence" had to think about the west.   Seating is very comfortable and promotes wonderful conversation. Waitresses bring large wonderful menus full of Ukrainian and other Eastern European delights.   One cannot visit without sampling the Borsh with Pampushki. Absolutely amazing!!! Another delicious treat are the dumplings. They are stuffed with potatoes or onion or beef and dressed with sour cream. Appetizers, salads, and drink selections are also plentiful. We must recommend any and all of the juices; these are something without comparison in the US. While here be sure to sample as many different kinds of vodkas as you can handle J there will be plenty of opportunity for sampling during your evening and your visit. We must insist that you try the honey pepper flavor, it may sound scary but it is well worth it.   The restaurant Dejavyu is located in City Center complex , so there are a lot of other attractions close by to keep you busy and entertained. A casino and billiard hall make for an exciting after dinner entertainment. There is also a fine cigar shop located in the complex, which by the way can sell you Cuban cigars. A large supermarket with many choices of groceries and supplies can keep you satisfied for anything that you may need to purchase. A large Mall is also located here, you can even buy a nice pair of Levis blue jeans here J High end Electronics and sports apparel is also widely available here.   We hope this helps in making a positive impression on your research when you are thinking about visiting Nikolaev, a truly wonderful and inviting city
