The most beautiful Cathedral I've ever seen. Icons by Mikhail Vrubel are extraordinary. You can feel the age of this building. Can you imagine that this cathedral was build in 1139!!! Unbelievable !!!! If you thinking about to visit Kiev, please go to this Cathedral....More

A unique experience no matter if you are religious or not. Especially the visit to the tombs and long underground passages are breathtaking.

Aside from the beautiful buildings, explore the caves where monks have been sealed in their burial chambers. Very historic!

It is a bit away from the main tourist drag, but don't fret, I just took subway to the "Petrovka" stop. Outside there is a bit of a chaos of small buses and street vendors, but look for one that goes down the "Oleny Telihi...More

We went by taxi, and had it wait for us. The price was not unreasonable. The church is 12th century with traces of beautiful frescoes and a variety of 19thc ones, too. No photography, but you can see the images on an excellent web site.

The original St. Cyril’s church was constructed in the 12th century and is the resting place of some of the early Kyivian Rus nobility. It always amazes me when something this old has survived, especially in a city such as Kyiv with its tumultuous history....More
