Souveniers On Andryivski Spusk
Andreevski Spusk is the mecca of souveniers. At weekends, the street is lined with small stands where Ukrainian people display and sell their arts or collections. At the top of the street it is mostly painters that lay out their mastpieces on the pavement. When you go further, you will pass stands with hand made jewellery, pottery, knitted scarves and hats, toys and much more. There are not only Ukraininian souveniers but also the symbols of the Soviet Era such as big furry hats, old watch and medals decorated with the omnipresent red star. These items, old books, LPs and so on are sometimes things that people kept or inherited and try to sell them to make a couple of Hryvnas. In general the souveniers on Andreevski Spusk are cheap and you can find real treasures sometimes.
