“St. Michael is another must-see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

My second favorite church was St. Michaels monestary. Completely different from some of the other churches. It's still a working monestary and I was fortunate to attend a service. A beautiful location to see the sun set over this monestary.

“Always a beautiful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

My fiance and I always go here when in Kiev. Ths Catheral was original destroyed under the Stalin regime andwas a rubble field for a number of years. After partition from Russia a request for donations went out to the Ukrainian diaspora to help rebuild the catheral. They got it back up and open in just three years.

The interior is very beautiful and solemn. I buy five candles and send prayers to St. Mikhail for family, my fiance, and for those no longer with us.

This imparts a great sense of peace to me. Try to visit when the monks are chanting the mass. Beautiful and very moving.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

I am not a particularly religious person but really enjoyed visiting the cathedral. I was given a tour by an english speaking guide who took us into many of the chapels and outer buildings. She described the history of the founding of the cathedral and how it all worked. It was just awe inspiring. We caught the end of one of the services and the music was incredible.

Its a very pictoresk monument. Walk around a little bit. It looks different from every angle. The combination of the colors are brilliant and make great shots.
