One of my favorite cathedral in my native city. The temple was destroyed in Soviet period and re-established again. It's very beautiful place. Very nice views. Of course you must visit this Cathedral if you visit Kyiv.

St Michaels is another beautiful iconic building. The interior was very nice but not overwhelmingly so – we have seen finer Orthodox churches with more dramatic interiors elsewhere. At least there was no charge to get in and there was no apparent ban on taking...More

St Michael's Monastery was the first stop during our long weekend in Kiev. While its a reconstruction, the monastery is still magnificent and the blue colour really makes it all the more impressive. Spend some time outside of the complex on the square, admiring the...More
