This is my second trip to Kiev in the last 5 years. I saw a huge change in the appearance of the city, noticeable new construction, appearance of the new fancy restaurants and general attitude toward foreigners. The city definitely became more European and some ways started to remind me Prague. Seeing foreigners and hearing foreign speech is a common occurrence now. The city made a lot of progress adding signs and information in the museums in English and several other languages ( few years back you can only find Ukrainian and Russian). In the downtown area, most restaurants have English menus.
