"St. Michael's Golden-Domen Cathedral" St Michael's Cathedral Tip by caprice_222

St Michael's Cathedral, Kiev: 12 reviews and 25 photos


St. Michael's Golden-Domen Cathedral is at the top of the funicular and also a short walk from St. Andrew's. Originally built by Prince Sviatopolk in 1108, this cathedral was destroyed by the Soviet regime in the mid-1930s in keeping with their anti-religion programme. The sky blue exterior and glittering golden domes are certainly stunning, even though up close it all seems a bit too new and shiny for this ancient city.
