The St. Nicholas Roman Catholic Cathedral (Костел Св. Миколая; translit.: Kostel Sviatoho Mykolaia) is the second Roman Catholic cathedral built in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. Today the building is shared between the Roman Catholic Church of Ukraine and the National House of Organ and Chamber Music. Another Catholic church, the St. Alexander Roman Catholic Cathedral, is the oldest Catholic church in the city and is located near the European Square behind the Ukrainian House in Kyiv.It was constructed from 1899–1909 and was built in a Gothic type construction, by Kyiv architects V. Gorodetsky and E. Sala. Historically, it belonged to the Latin Rite Catholic community. It stands at vulytsia Velyka Vasylkivska (Greater Vasylivka street) in Pechersk Raion next to the National Linguistic University of Kyiv between the National Sports Complex Olimpiysky and the Railroad station Kyiv-Tovarny.HistoryA competition was held in 1898 for the designs for a Roman Catholic Cathedral in Kyiv, which was won by architect S. Volovskiy. His entry into the competition included a Gothic type construction with two 60m towers. The final revision and management of the project was assigned to the Kyivan architect Vladislav Gorodetsky, and Emilio Sala added sculptural decoration in artificial stone to the construction. To increase the stability of the construction on the uneven Kyiv ground, it was ensured by bore-and-stuffed piles, a newly introduced invention of Anton Strauss. The construction work was carried out by exclusively from voluntary donations, and lasted for ten years (1899–1909).

  • It's not only the Orthodox Church of Ukraine. Ukraine, which is classified as a formal Roman Catholic Eastern Catholic. South Korea's PBC also broadcast the mass never came out. So look for a non-Catholic Cathedral, the Orthodox Church in Kiev saw the Catholic cathedral here corresponds to the St. Nicholas Cathedral of the Magi. Trip Advisor Award site is here for ticket sales to the concert site. I have several times per month, but the organ look gigs gigs seemed to have. The Cathedral is the site for -18:30 Fellowship mass Tue-sat 07:00 mass, mass six times a week. 08:45-11:45, 10, 11, 13:15, 18:00. The way other Catholic countries like the mass. Weekday mass over 10 people participated in the mass. Eastern Catholic worship such as the Orthodox Church that approach at all. Be sure the Roman Catholic was the idea of a sect.

  • This church stands out for its architecture significantly against the backdrop of more or less similar Orthodox churches. See worth, this is much diversity and photos and impressions))

  • Quite different from the rest of the Church, but it is very nice and definitely worth checking out if you're in town you go!
