St. Andrew's 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.

Saint Sophia Cathedral

A series of gilded domes, undulating and gently cascading in their capacity, adorn the bright-green rooftops of one of Kiev's most extraordinary monuments, the Saint Sophia's Cathedral. This cathedral was built in the first half of the 11th Century to commemorate the victory of Yaroslav the Wise over the Pecheneg tribe. For years, the cathedral served as the interring site for several Kievan royals including Yaroslav himself. At the outset of the 12th and 13th centuries, the cathedral witnessed a wave of deterioration by Vladimir-Suzdal forces and Mongolian invasions, a situation that remained largely unchanged until the 16th Century. After Metropolitan Peter took the reins of the Orthodox church in 1633, the church slowly underwent a marked revival that continued well into the 18th Century. At this time, the cathedral's baroque extension included a bell tower, a seminary and a bakery, among other features. Today, St. Sophia is rightfully considered as the treasure of Ukraine and is protected by UNESCO.
