“Must see!”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Beautiful, stunning blue colours on a blue background of the sky! And golden cupola - breethkeeping! Garden is a very quiet and relaxing place in the hurrying city center.
Bell tower is awsome as well - bells clanging are handmade and beautiful. The view from the bell tower is spectacular and direct to another beautiful and very old place - St. Sophia Cathedral.
St.Michael cathedral belongs to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

“Very little open when I was there”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

When I visited in September, 2013, there was a lot of the church that was closed off, and the entryway was the only thing I saw. It was OK, but a long uphill walk for a short visit.

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

This church was just a short walk from the Bontiak hotel, where I was staying, and definitely worth it. The paintings on the walls are rich with such beauty. It was a truly memorable sight. This is one of my favorite places to go when I am in Kiev to pause and think.

“Absolutely Beautiful Architecture”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Briefly attended Sunday morning services with a friend at St. Michael's - hence I did not take the paid tour. The building itself is absolutely beautiful and an architectural treasure. The gold-leaf paints used inside are stunning, along with old wooden items, paintings and frescoes, and a host of other wonderful images. Highly receommend a visit to this cathedral to enjoy it's beauty and appreciate it's great age.
