Featuring a perfect balance of ancient and modern, Kyiv entices travelers the moment they gaze upon the city’s gold domes lighting up the leafy banks of the Dnipro. Ukraine’s capital city is equally loyal to babushkas and newly-rich oligarchs in fancy cars, to quiet idyllic parks and bustling highways, to top-notch supermarkets and flea markets like Kurazh.

Founded in October 2015, Kurazh (known until early 2020 as Kurazh Bazar or Кураж Базар) has since then become a true landmark in Kyiv for flea market enthusiasts and antique lovers. The original idea behind Kurazh was to create a space where everyone could buy and sell second-hand items, have fun while helping raise money for various Kyiv charities. The entrance fee to Kurazh costs $3 USD, 1/3 of which is donated to a charity fund that helps children with disabilities and seriously ill children.

Today, Kurazh has grown into a fully-fledged flea market combined with a day party and thematically editions (Jazz Edition, Literature Kurazh, Christmas Party…) which welcomes once a month up to 400 flea market vendors and between 12,000 and 15,000 visitors, at the pavilion at VDNG — a historical location which has become one of Kyiv’s highlights for entertainment .

Goods sold at Kurazh can basically be divided into two groups: old and new. Old merchandise include antiques from all over the world and second-hand items. Kurazh has its own team of flea market vendors who oversee the sale of unique items sourced from different flea markets from around the world. And new merchandise include all kinds of accessories, clothes and other things created by young Ukrainian designers.

At this point at least 30% of all vendors sell what is considered real vintage and antique goods, like silverware and crockery, porcelain vases, paintings, collections of old samovars, antique clocks, musical instruments, antique lamps, glassware, vintage clothes and accessories, old photos of Kyiv and its residents, books and newspapers, vinyl records, photo cameras, and soviet memorabilia. The icing on the cake: most prices are super friendly, and there’s even room for haggling!

Besides the flea market itself, Kurazh offers many more opportunities for leisure: green lawn with sun loungers and puffs, workshops and lectures, live performances, concerts, street bars with wine and cocktails, and a food court with tasty food, therefore catering to anyone who just looks forward to spending the weekend in a cool festive atmosphere, while trying their luck at finding hidden treasures.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
