Located at the top of St. Andrew's Decent, this church offers a great view of the surrounding city. It is a very beautiful church though it lacks the sacred feeling of St. Michael's. It is certainly worth your time.

Once in a while, i visit St.Andrew's church with my wife to enjoy the touristic site and scenic view that top of the church provides. but of course, visiting inside the church is a must. loved the colour and how well the church interior has been presented. take your camera and take many photos!

1 of 7th wonders of Kyiv, it is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. It was constructed in 1747-1762 in Baroque style after the project of the prominent architect F.-B. Rastrelli.

We lived opposite this church which not only gave us a great view from the dining room, but also we were able to go regularly, since being renovated the church is stunning, the gold inside is amazing and the view from the outside is worth the trek up andryivski uzviz.

Beautiful architecture. At the top of a winding old road, the character of the church and location is wonderful. Plenty of souvenirs to be had on the Andreevsky Spusk, where you can buy authentic local artwork and stop in for good food and drink.

Impressive church, both inside and because of the amazing view on Kiev from it. A visit to Kiev without visiting Saint Andrew's church would not be complete!

Located reasonably centrally, but with big views out over the river and beyond. The structure is absolutely beautiful in the sunlight - possibly one of the best - and I caught it in the late afternoon sun. It appears to be free to enter, though there is a sign with some figures of UAH 15-35. I didn't understand the lady,... More

Marvellous church not far from the other main attractions of Kiev. Nice sunny day when I visited, making it a very photogenic building. Very well maintained and worth a visit.
