Impressive! Big Orthodox Church that worth visiting. I end up in December, at 9AM and there was already a service done but some priests and Coire. It's like 3 church in one, a big one in the middle and 2 on sides. Inside you can also see the basement where the old altar used to be. Very nice

We visited on a walking tour of Kyiv and were totally awed by the beauty of this building. It's decor has so much gold and intricate carvings and just with the smells of bees wax candles burning by the altar is an experience in person that guide books can't fully explain. Truly worth a visit!

Stunning inside and outside! Lovely colors! Its worth coming to see it, entrance is free so nothing to worry. It looks very large outside but small inside. Beautiful!

If you will not see all the places of religion culture, you would not understand differences in religion.

On a sunny day (that I had the luck to have) the domes of the cathedral may blind you. All of the gold. Surely worth a visit. Kept in a fantastic state, clean, well-kept, rather easy to get to. No surcharge for the visit. Also it is a quite quiet place.

St. Michaels is just another one of those incredible Cathedrals in Kiev and Ukraine for that matter and St. Sophia's is just down the street in the opposite direction. Behind the Cathedral on the grounds there is a beautiful overlook of the city.

I came here almost by accident as it was pouring with rain and I was seeking shelter on the way back to my hotel. As luck would have it there was a concert being performed by a choral group and the sound was wonderful. I stayed for a full hour listening to the singing and it really complemented the magnificent... More

The Cathedrale is very beautiful outside. Inside it is so freshly renovated, that does not impress much.

Beautiful church inside and out! I took some amazing pictures with the blue church and crisp fall blue sky.

This cathedral only finished being restored two years ago and so it looks very clean and elaborate. A beautiful cathedral with amazing mosaics and a fascinating history. Thankfully many of the churches of Kiev are gradually being restored.
