Khreschatyk is our main street here; I was amazed by the decorations myself - turns out they were due to the 60th anniversary of the city's liberation during WWII...
Lipki is my very favorite neighborhood in Kyiv - I can walk there with my eyes closed, and most of the time I feel very dreamy there, and very calm.
#4 is one of the government buildings - the Cabinet of Ministers or something... Huge and not too cheerful when you're standing next to it. But it is photogenic - this is the second photo of it here on Fotopages; I saw a similar one at Denny Hermanu's page - http://www.fotopages.com/cgi-bin/show_photo.pl?id=89482
#3 is where they used to have wedding ceremonies back in the Soviet times. The building has been totally neglected for many years now - no money for reconstruction or so they want us to think. A little bit further, where the green light is, is the building in which, allegedly, there is a room that's an exact copy of a train car - I mention it in my Evil Trains piece. They used to have our Foreign Ministry in there and now it's either being slowly reconstructed or houses the Supreme Court... (I'm not the best guide in the world, definitely...)
#5 is the fireworks as seen from the park. The park's across the street from #4.
