St. Cyril's Monastery, Kyiv (Kiev)

Church · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
St. Cyril's Monastery (Ukrainian: Кирилівський монастир, translit. Kyrylivs’kyi monastyr) is a medieval monastery in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. The monastery contains the famous St. Cyril's Church, an important specimen of Kievan Rus' architecture of the 12th century, and combining elements of the 17th and 19th centuries. However, being largely Ukrainian Baroque on the outside, the church retains its original Kievan Rus' interior.

  • Mural artwork on walls in church ranges from exceptionally old to the 17/1800s... I believe. The older art is fragile or even only partially remaining in some cases as it might no longer exist due to decay, is in a state of rehab, or has been painted over with more recent art. Its definitely something to see for art or church enthusiasts.
