  • If someone just wants to see a church in Podil district, then it should be from outside the. of the many impressive green dome and the peace that it has within the enclosure of the monastery, but it really is the most beautiful in the area, but none of the many rival in Kiev. Perhaps only the St. Sofia frescos liked better, very tasteful, engaging and well balanced throughout the Interior. Therefore, it is forbidden to take pictures within pictures we find it, we need to look in our own eyes! On Kontraktova square, together with the monastery and the 1-2-hour program and helps us get closer to a full understanding of Kiev.

  • In the heart of Podol, near andreevsky descent, crouched Florovsky svyato-voznesensky female monastery, one of the many in Kiev, but far from the last. The monastery occupies a fairly large area and consists of several churches, monastic cells, Bell Tower, etc. most of the territory closed to normal visitors, in spite of this, there is also an open part of that show. When you get to the territory of the monastery, there is a feeling that he is somewhere far beyond the big city-silence, birds sing. The biggest interest is the Church of the resurrection, built in Ukrainian style and decorated with beautiful paintings as inside. and outside. As in most temples, take pictures inside is prohibited.

Next-voskresenskaya Church-Rotunda. and the refectory Church, which attracts the monumental composition on the outer extent of the picturesque St. Seraphim of Sarov. There are benches, many colors.
