St. Michael's Cathedral is very near to St Sophia's cathedral. It is as beautiful as St Sophia's. You will see renovation work going on at both the cathedrals. The colors are selective too. White and Green for Sophia's, White and Blue for Michael's is pretty amazing. I wish the renovation work be fast and both the cathedrals be just as... More

St. Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery The first documented reference about St. Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery occurs in the chronicles where it was said that on the 11th of July, 1106 near St. Demetrius’s Monastery and St. Peter’s Church the Prince Sviatopolk Iziaslavovich, the grandson of Yaroslav the Wise, began the construction of a new church dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel.

Gorgeous cathedral glistening in the sun, a 3 min walk from St. Sophia. If you are there can't be missed, but inside is rather forgetful

I never went inside but walked around outside, which was free. A beautiful blue and gold cathedral set in nice surroundings.

Located oposite to st sophia, you can immediately see another church just like that. But at least this time for free. From the inside it looks almostbthe same with the similar golden design. Worth checking out but sophia looks much better on my opinion.

I have a passion for churches/cathedrals all over the world and this certainly satisfied my curiosity. The lavish colours on the outside give an almost fairy-tale castle look to the building and it stands out in the city. The grounds are lovely and there is a steady stream of people in and out. The building was completely rebuilt when Ukraine... More

It is ok but really not much. Difficult to appreciate. Small in size but a symbol in Kiev. You got to visit

Definitely one of the most intriguing yet ornate orthodox churches! The clock chimes every hour, and visitors are here everyday. You can go inside the church but as with any other churches, there are icons, candles, and preachers. The area is quite large as well. You definitely want to visit here as a good attraction spot in Kiev! Visited back... More
