One of many beautiful churches in Kiev. This one at least least you take pictures inside. Stunning both inside and out and worth the short walk from the main city centre.

This is one of the most beautiful churches I've ever been in. They see to accept visitors even when there's a wedding or service going on, provided you act respectfully. It's an Orthodox Cathedral, so very interesting to compare with Catholic, Protestant and other cathedrals in Europe.

A very beautiful and accessible church in the centre of Kyiv. Worth a quick visit but it is a tourist trap.

Beautiful cathedral with works by Nesterov, Vasnetsov, and Vrubel. The stand immediately inside the door and to the right has a hardcover, blue book on Ukraine with pictures of some of the paintings here, as well as many other sites; it wasn't on display. We asked about it, after showing a picture of Vasnetsov's.

I spend a half day with a private guide and driver so I could see these different buildings. I love architecture, and this was like icing on a cake.

The works by Vasnetsov inside are amazing. You forget about their scale at times. Truly beautiful and awe-inspiring.

Here people gathered to pray and it was humbling to see their fervour. This is more than a beautiful tourist site, here one senses the meeting of God and humankind.
