To be enjoyed with guided tour - and do walk around the golden gate with a guide to get all the little stories explained, like the cat, the fountain, buy a hot soup from the corner shop or taste Georgian wine in the corner restaurant

We visited the outside only as this was closed inside when we visited. Therefore, I can only comment on the ugly exterior in not a great location.

The touch of History in the center of the city. In the Soviet time I remember it was often "on restoration" and closed - so now that who missed the visiting in childhood can enjoy it. Nice building and picturesque view.

This is an incredible church to visit. Unfortunately when I was here they were doing renovations and we were not allowed inside. The outside view of it it spectacular. Wooden church and old I might add. Worth a visit.

This place shows how most probably looked like historical fortification of the city including one of its gates. It probably worked good as Kiev Rus empire was a successful attempt to create a state with Kiev as a capital.

Take a walking tour and your guide will describe the Golden Gate (which is actually not golden at all...)

I loved how they re-built this sight. What it must have looked like back in the day when it was complete. Very walkable from St Sophia's. Doesnt take long to see, so you should stop by

No matter what season this is my favorite area to hang out in, just enjoying the structure from an outside cafe. However the inside is definitely worth seeing!

The golden gates of Kiev, a worth visiting place to see, especially if you live near by, or you walk passing by, near a metro station too. So you can go by metro too, which is really cheap the ticket.

Like many things in Kiev - it costs very little to veiw (about £1.40) and it is worth a visit if you are in the area - it is quit a cool building and also pretty interesting.
