The Cathedral is on the main boulevard and very close to the University Metro Station. It is a striking yellow on the outside and just as striking inside. When we arrived a service was in progress and it was restful listening to it. The Cathedral is noted for its decorations and we were told that during the Soviet era it... More

St Volodymyr's Cathedral is quite stunning. The architecture is truly amazing as is the eye-catching yellow exterior. The inside is what you would expect with plenty of beautiful murals and paintings of Saints. Well worth the visit and easy to get to.

This isn't the largest church in Kiev, but it is very impressive! The bright color is wonderful! Even on an overcast fall day it really stands out!

Even though this cathedral is by no means old in Kiev (middle 19th century), it is definitely one of the most magical ones. You don't have to stay there for very long, but do go there. The inside is simply stunning. I felt at home there. In fact, I am taking my mother there next month when I'm going to... More

One of the most beautiful churches in Kiev in my opinion. It does not look like much from the outside, but do go in.
