After so many churches not permitting photography it was great to find this church - video cost was 200uah and still camera I think was 70uah.

be sure to take a local translator. An incredible ornate church that is worth the stop to visit and an Orthodox guide is most helpful.
Located between both old and high rise buildings near Universytet metro station, this church has all the characteristics known for Eastern Orthodox culture and architecture.

A stunning interior to this cathedral with as expected gold and paintings. Remove hats when entering and as expected not to speak too loudly.
To get the full historical significance of the artwork inside, it's good to have a guide who can tell you about the history of St. Volodymyr and his family. Fascinating insight into Ukrainian cultural background.
Like a lot of the Byzantine churches in Kyiv, this one offers up amazing architecture. But at night is where it really shines. Simply stunning.
We stopped in here since it was right up the street from our hotel. Lovely stain glass windows. Visited in the evening while a mass was being said. Will return during the day to see what the stained glass looks like with light streaming through.
