Amazing church. I visited on a Sunday when super full. It was amazing to experience the huge spirituality of this people so proud of their millenary tradition.

Beautiful orthodox church. It smells wonderfully from all the wax candles. While I stayed in KIev I made it my daily habit to visit this cathedral to light up few candles and have a short prayer wishing for a great day in the city. All...More

עוד אחת באוסף הכנסיות הצבעוניות והמרהיבות של העיר. מקום נהדר הממוקם מול הכניסה לגן בוטני פומין. לדעתי היא בשורה השנייה ל הכנסיות בקייב, מייד אחרי סנט. מייקל וסנט אנדרו ולצד סנט. סופיה. שווה ביקור. לא נכנסנו פנימה. היא נהדרת גם רק מבחוץ. Another in the...More

St Volodymyr's Cathedral is a wonderful place to visit in Kyiv, and I often visit for holidays and other events. It is a beautiful church, but it is just not a tourist attraction, but also a genuine temple of worship.

This was my favourite church in Kiev. Its interiors are most ornate and impressive. Yet, it is not a touristy place: ordinary people pop in there to light a votive candle and pray. Just sit yourself on one of only two small benches towards the...More

So many cathedrals in this region are beautiful, some more than others. This one is quite stunning. I would highly recommend

This church was about 500 metres from our hotel so it was the first attraction we visited in Kiev. It is nearly opposite the University metro station (red line 2) and close to other attractions like the Botanical gardens and Shevchenko Park. The color scheme...More

Shouldn't review a church in terms of splendour, but would say that this probably the most practical of the churches visited. Slightly out of the centre and therefore a more day to day church if there's such a thing. Again if you are into churches...More

I think it was about 50 UAH or so. But you could always ask someone from visitors to help you with translation, most young people in Kyiv speak English
