St. Michael's Cathedrale, Kiev

(4.7/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Although Soviet authorities demolished the medieval-era original before World War II, St. Michael's Cathedrale stands today reflecting much of its former glory. Deemed historically worthless by the Communist government and obliterated in 1936, the church was reconstructed by 2000 as a post-independence project of the Ukrainian government. Walk the cathedral grounds and marvel at the structure's array of golden domes and sky-blue paint. Admire the many depictions of its patron saint, the Archangel Michael, including the golden statue that sits high above the entrance. Be sure to visit the museum to see exhibitions displaying religious artifacts related to the cathedral and documenting its journey through history.

  • Cool so that even your breath. If you find yourself in Kiev-be sure to visit this temple! In addition, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that the usual "grannies-prizhivalok" temple that usually crowds walking around the temple and sujut your nose at all, advising all unnecessarily and very angry looking at everything and how you're doing; so that's where you won't see them! At least, I haven't seen. It's really a place where you can quietly pray, reflect or simply enjoy the beauty and grandeur of the temple.
