In gen-eral, the authors tried to explore the image of Kyiv City the travel books created in the eyes of potential visitors, and their target audience. For our analysis, we have chosen a few popular travel books for high-soci-ety travelers by V. D. Bublyk, Watzlaw Checkhovsky, N. Taranovskyi, M. S. Bo-huslavskyi, D. Margolin, and K. V. Sherotsky. The methodology is based on combining different approaches (content anal-ysis, sociocultural analysis), as well as on general scientific methods (analysis, synthesis, generalization, etc.).Recreating the elements of the music life of pre-revolutionary Kyiv illustrates the complexity and multifaceted nature of the city at that time. The rapid develop-ment of the music environment went hand in hand with the development of tourism as well as with the distribution of modernized travel books, and these processes were accelerated by progress in globalization, urbanization, transport develop-ment, secularization, the democratization of everyday life, etc.The obtained results can be used in the planning of tourist routes and use the experience of the past in making Kyiv attractive for potential tourists
