This is a good in and out visit that offers some neat architecture and religious art, you can easily stop in while you are walking by and then continue onward.

There are a lot of nice rmonasteries in Kiev but St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery is really beautiful, especially outside with its live colours. The monastery is located on the right bank of the Dnieper River on the edge of a bluff northeast of the Saint Sophia Cathedral and and overlooks the city's historical commercial and merchant quarter. Entrance is free.

I had a chance to see it only from the exterior, but I am sure I am a lucky person. This Cathedrale is incredibly gorgeous. If you have some time in Kiev you should definitely visit it!

St Michael's Cathedrale is the city monastery and it is the best place to understand how deep is the memory of Kyiv citizens. The monastery became the place to save the beaten students from Maidan three years ago. And when police tried to penetrate inside, monastery bells started ringing calling for Kyivans' support. Later, when monk was asked how often... More

It's so blue. Great site to visit and take a few minutes to reflect inside.Unlike St Sophia this seemed more reserved and spiritual.Walk all the way around the arch coming out is magnificent. Beware of local photographers trying to put birds on your shoulders and throwing monkeys in suits at you.I kid you not.

Not only is this Cathedral beautiful on the outside it is also beautiful in the inside. It is amazing at night when it highlights the sky with its lights. Kodak moment!

This is one of the most important places in Kyiv. Very quiet but powerful. Here you can feel the spirit of history, the saint atmosphere. It protected and hosted many people during the Revolution of Dignity. Religion doesn't matter. Just come here to see one of the most beautiful Cathedrals in Ukraine. Especially its blue walls are amazingly beautiful in... More
