The National Philharmonic

The National Philharmonic Society of Ukraine (Ukrainian: Національна Філармонія України), often referred to as Kiev Philharmonic and National Philharmonic, is a concert hall in Kiev, Ukraine.

The historic building founded in the end of the 19th century, standing at the end of Khreschatyk street in the European Square, has been a pride of the city ever since its creation. Throughout the centuries it has hosted numerous Russian composers such as Sergei Rachmaninoff, Alexander Scriabin, and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and famous opera singers like Leonid Sobinov and Feodor Chaliapin.
