Lypky (Ukrainian: Липки) is a historic neighborhood located in the administrative Pechersk Raion (district) of the Ukrainian capital Kiev. The name has derived from a lime tree (Lypa).

Lypky became known only recently since the 19th century. During that time it already became known as an elite district. Geographically Lypky is considered to be part of Pechersk (Caves), yet it is located between the Old Kyiv neighborhood (bordering by Khreshchatyk) and the Pechersk neighborhood across the Klov descent and Mechnikov Street.
