St. Volodymyr's Cathedral, Kiev

4.7
With its seven domes crowned by gilded crosses, the lavish silhouette of St. Volodymyr's Cathedral rises above the winding streets. Dating back to 1859, the church was built from donations from residents of the Russian Empire and the other churches, which took about 37 years to collect. The 49 m (161 ft) yellow-and-blue structure showcases a Neo-Byzantine architectural style, an outgrowth of Roman building techniques. Inside you'll see mosaic decorations produced by prominent Venetian artists. Notice frescoes of famous local painters, opulent bronze busts, and an iconostasis carved out of white marble from Tuscany.

  • A cathedral still actively used. The inside was truly charming. We had visited during the wedding, the experience was very different and beautiful. A must-see.
  • Wow. If you ever had doubts that some churches had a soul then come here and see for yourself. A true spiritual experience and not only for the faithful of the Eastern orthodox Church. A must see for every visitor to Kiev.
