St. Volodymyr's Cathedral, Kiev

(400+ reviews on the web)
Church
With its seven domes crowned by gilded crosses, the lavish silhouette of St. Volodymyr's Cathedral rises above the winding streets. Dating back to 1859, the church was built from donations from residents of the Russian Empire and the other churches, which took about 37 years to collect. The 49 m (161 ft) yellow-and-blue structure showcases a Neo-Byzantine architectural style, an outgrowth of Roman building techniques. Inside you'll see mosaic decorations produced by prominent Venetian artists. Notice frescoes of famous local painters, opulent bronze busts, and an iconostasis carved out of white marble from Tuscany. Arrange to visit St. Volodymyr's Cathedral and other attractions in Kiev using our Kiev travel itinerary planner.

  • If the entry is free of charge, at the time a beautiful Cathedral protected labor to the present day. The only thing that upset me, the walls of a historic place like this sound system of the Assembly.

  • “The main Church of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church” Very beautiful temple which survived in the era of communism. St. Vladimir's Cathedral was one of the few active temples in the city in the period of Communist ideology. Cathedral of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church-Kyiv Patriarchate is not only one of the most majestic temples in the world, built in the XIX century, but also a monument to the outstanding Christian Prince Vladimir the Great. Moreover, the relics of the Holy Great Martyr Barbara are stored here.
  • Amazing place next to the botanical garden.
  • beautiful monastery
  • It's a good historical place with Vasnetsov painting on the walls.
  • Very beautiful historical cathedral.
