You'll end up twiddling your thumbs if you're stuck in Kiev for a couple of weeks.
FUCKING BOLLOCKS !!!
Besides the more publicised sites already mentioned you can go to Opera/Ballet/Symphony 3 or 4 times a week at about $10 for the best seats in the house ( 60 cents for the worst ).
The outdoor markets at Petrivka and Troieshenya are worth a good day each.
Rodina Matt museum of the Great Patriotic War, you really can't miss it, bloody great steel woman on top with adjacent Tank and Missile Park if that's your thing.
Bear in mind you'll be full on with serious beauracracy so possibly not as much free time as you think.
Cruise on the river and/or go fishing.
Peregova (sp.), an outdoor park with lakes which shows of traditional country buildings and way of life.
Kyiv is great, just wandering around is heaps of fun.
