Kiev (Kyiv), the capital of Ukraine, is an ancient city situated along the banks of the Dnieper river. It has a long and rich history, to large extent due to its geographic position, being the main route from Scandinavia (the Varangians) to Greece (Constantinople). Kiev was the capital (metropolis) of the ancient Russian cities. Its history is reflected in splendid monuments such as the Kiev Pechersk Lavra, the St. Sophia Cathedral and many other architecture masterpieces. Some of them can be seen at the Photo Gallery.
Today's Kiev is a modern European city, with many theaters, concert halls, bars and restaurants, parks and open sandy beaches along the Dnieper, with convenient and cheap metro.The Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics (BITP), the organizer of the conference, was founded in 1966 by N.
