The launch of a new travel website could encourage more people to book flights to Kiev, one of eastern Europe's most important cultural destinations.

Kiev.com features interactive maps of the Ukrainian capital to help visitors find their way around, as well as sections dedicated to the city's sights, nightlife and restaurants.

Users can also download a free copy of the Kiev Metro route map and access information about special events taking place in the city.

In the sights section, travellers will find details of popular attractions such as the Saint Sophia Cathedral, the Fomin Botanical Gardens and the Kiev National Museum of Russian Art.

Football fans from across Europe are expected to visit Kiev over the next few weeks, as it is one of the host cities for the 2012 European Championships.

The city's Olympic Stadium is due to stage the final of the tournament, which is being jointly hosted by Ukraine and Poland, on Sunday 1 July.
