Bohdana Khmelnytskoho Street

  • Bohdana Khmelnytskoho Street is located between Khreshchatyk and Olesia Honchara streets.

    It was constructed in 1830 years and initially it was called Kadetska, because it was planned to build cadet corps here. In October 1856 there was built City Theatre (Opera and Ballet theatre is now in its place). In 1869 the street was renamed to Fundukleivska after the famous patron, Governor Earl Fundukleiev; since 1919 it's name was changed to Lenina street (except for 1941-43 - during the German occupation it was named Teatershtrasse).

    In 1992 the street got its present name – Bohdana Khmelnytskoho.

    In 1851-1853, there was erected the building Anatomy Theatre (now - Museum of Medicine of Ukraine), designed by architect O. Beretti; in 1859 there was opened the first girls' school, built on the funds of I. Fundukleiev; in 1871 was founded the College of P. Halahan, private gymnasium for men, and in 1874 – circus – inside it’s building in 1877 was the hotel "Lion" and Berhonie Theatre (now – Russian Drama Theatre).

    In 1892 on the street there was paved the route of one of the first Kyiv trams, and then it was cobbled.

    Today Bohdana Khmelnytskoho street is one of the main central thoroughfares of the city.
