The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire

Kiev [Tyler]

Kiev is at the crossroads of Slavic culture. It’s location on the Dnieper River makes it a prime convergence of religion, culture, and economic activity. I set out on the journey of Kiev—through its founding, Christianization, Polish and Russian imperial domination, and finally, independence. By analyzing ethnic and religious groups in Kiev, along with Ukrainian writers, a distinct Ukrainian culture is found in Kiev. A culture that has survived generations of suppression under the Polish and Russian Empires, but is still flourishing today. This is the story of Kiev.
