Stays on the top of one of the hills, nice view from there. Beautiful place, nice surounding. Narrow, steep streets, many street-shopping facilities.

An absolutely stunning piece of architecture. I visited in winter on a sunny day so there was opportunity to take some rather nice photos against the snowy terrain. Well worth a visit.

This an absolutely amazing place! A fantastic exemplar of religious architecture! Very beautiful and peaceful! Both the interior and the exterior will blow your mind! Just an important note here, on you way to the cathedral be very vigilant! I got fooled by charlatans! Actually this can happen anywhere in Kiev, but it happened to me right near the cathedral,...

The golden cupolas of St Michael's Monastery sparkle & gleam in the sunshine. A stunningly beautiful monastery.

Facing saint Sophia, S. Michael is not a lesser beauty. A light blue, white and gold cocktail with a less interesting interior. great if you can catch a service, but dont take photos.

Impressive like most cathedrals. Worth a visit, especially if you haven't seen many non-western cathedrals.

Beautiful blue cathedrale complex with many old buildings around and fantastic interior, the blue colour colour of the building matched the perfect blue sky, very close to Saint Sophia - maybe 5 minutes walk

What a beautiful and well done reconstruction of what must have been a stunning original. No photos are allowed inside the church but guide books can be purchased with the history of the site and beautiful color pictures for less than $1...yes, you read that right, less than $1. Very ornate and tastefully decorated with fresco's and the iconic orthodox... More

This is a recomstruction, but an absolutely wonderful one. It is amazing how the spirit of God lived on through the Soviet occupation to inspire folks to rebuild this monument. Great place to visit and a good landmark to navigate from. I hope the current hostilities leave it alone.

This cathedral was the most ornate in my opinion and inside was the most beautiful of all the cathedrals in Kyiv.
