5 mins walk from opera or park shevchenko lies this beautiful orthodox church with the typical soft pastel colors yellow and blue and richly decorated interior. But if you have little time the churches in Lavra and Sofinska sq and s. Andrey are far more interisting

I was fortunate to attend a service in this beautiful church decorated by a whole team of Russian painters in the Art Nouveau style. A wonderful place to visit and very moving.

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!
