4.7/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web
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.

  • The smaller temples line falls, at least as measured by increments in Kiev. The cupola frescoes is particularly rich, Jesus caught on. From the outside, I think the color friendly is perfect, I fell in love. Inside many of the sales pitches and no shortage of visitors. The architecture and is highly recommended for tourists who are biased. From here, a 5-minute walk from the Opera and the Golden Gate, so you can easily fit into the program.

  • This is a working church and when we went there was a mass going on. It is appropriate to cover head and legs if in shorts. Beautiful architecture and interesting interior. 
  • It's a good historical place with Vasnetsov painting on the walls.
