This church is located right at the Andriyivski Uzviz, a tiny souvenir street on the hill. In order to get there, there will be a little challenge: walking on steps through many people, who make pictures of themselves and others on the background of the church. Because this church is a working one and it is not a museum as... More

This is a small but gorgeous church, steeped in history and with amazing views. Don't plan on more than 45 minutes or so, but it will be time well spent, and then take a stroll down the descent road to old Podil...

This church reminds me of St Petersburg, the colours the lines. It has been recently renovated so looks very fresh. The location is great. At the top of the hill by the church are many street vendors and they continue down the hill in single file. Make sure you walk to the bottom and then turn to the right at... More

Walking up or down the steep cobblestone street, St. Andrews stands prominent and shining about mid hill on an overlook with all of Kiev below her. What an inspiring sight. Photos don't capture its beauty. Don't miss it!

Small church located near Podil district is one of the Kyiv symbols. The Church inside with its beautiful iconostasis is not often available for visiting due to restoration works, but you can always enjoy the outside view.

Loved this colorful cathedral and all the surrounding tourist stalls. The street itself is a wonder...like so many others here. How can the ladies wear high heels???

This cathedral overlooks the Dnieper river. Very beautiful but small compared to the other cathedrals in Kyiv. Don't forget to check out the open market for souvenirs nearby.

Small but perfectly formed church with great views over the river. Inside is relatively small and a typically ornate Ukrainian interior, with high soaring domes and elaborate gilded carvings and paintings.
