We have seen many temples in Kiev and elsewhere, but most of them became a tourist attraction. St. Volodymyr's Cathedral is a relatively rare exception where local believers come to pray and try to endure the tourists. Unlike other churches in Kiev, it doesn't glitter...More

This was my favourite church in Kiev. Its interiors are most ornate and impressive. Yet, it is not a touristy place: ordinary people pop in there to light a votive candle and pray. Just sit yourself on one of only two small benches towards the...More

We stopped here for 20 minutes and it was a good experience. Visit when there is a service. It cost to take photos but works out about £1.00 to do so.

I think it was about 50 UAH or so. But you could always ask someone from visitors to help you with translation, most young people in Kyiv speak English
