This is my favorite church in Kiev. It is not as spectacular as two or three of the cathedrals, but it a great location with views of the city

The layout of this church means it appears deceptively small on the inside. When I visited it was crammed with worshippers and officials and whilst the spectacle was interesting this was not one of Kiev's better churches.

Very nice place which is situated on the hill. Fantastic overview on the acient region of Kiev - Podol and Dniper river. The church was built in 18 cent. It is decorated by famous Ukrainian paintings insite. It has very good aura...

The only church in Kyiv, which doesn't have bells. If you are curious why, you can check old legends :) Definitely MUST VISIT place. It is charming both outside and inside.

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.
