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.

This is a very beautiful and very popular church located right across from the Universityet Metro Station and Taras Shevchenko University. It's usually lit up very prettily at night as well. Word to the wise - they take Orthodox protocol very seriously here, so men: no hats, and women: head covered.

I almost always visit this cathedral when I am in Kyiv. In a city filled with many beautiful churches, this is a stand-out. It is easy to reach, very close to the University Metro Station. There are many churches in Kyiv that are older and that are worth seeing for their ancient nature. Volodymyr is a 19th century church building... More

So many amazing places in Kiev. Lots of Cathedrals which you can never get bored with. All of which are unique and worth the time to visit. St. Volodymyrs Cathedral is no different and a great place to visit.

An absolutely beautiful church. More for believers than tourists though, and that's something to have in mind and to respect.
