"18th-century Church"

Deep teal-colored onion domes, bejeweled with gold trimmings sit atop this grand Baroque church in the heart of Kiev. The church is perched atop the Andriyivska Hill and it offers from its vantage a soul-stirring panorama of Podil's historic neighborhood. The Saint Andrew's Church was built in 1754 to honor Saint Andrew, known to Ukrainians as the 'Apostle of Rus'. Designed by renowned Italian architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli, the church was built when Russian Empress Elizabeth decided to build her summer abode in the city. She herself laid the first symbolic brick of the new palace and church. Among the many features of this splendid church, the sweeping stucco interiors and the tracery of iconostasis under the gold-laced central dome are held in high regard.
