Visited the Cathedral during Sunday mass. The atmosphere is divine and the icons inside are unique. The Cathedral is a symbol of Orthodox Christianity of Ukraine.

There was a service inside the cathedral and it was very heart warming. The interior is so beautiful with chandeliers and intricate details of paintings and religious leaders. Very beautiful and a wonderful experience!

I always come here when I need to think or to light a candle. Super quiet atmosphere, very beautiful both inside and outside. Especially in the evening. For me St. Volodymyr's Cathedral is one of the most important symbols of Kyiv.

St.Volodymyr is one of my favorite cathedrals and real must-see in Kiev. It is especially known for its amazing interior paintings one might spend hours admiring.

This is a unique and moving Cathedral and a must see to understand the culture of Ukraine. Be prepared to donate money for the right to photograph the murals and inlays inside the cathedral. This is a worthy cause since it helps to maintain the structure.

I visited this Cathedral several times. Luckily on Pokrova, 14 of October, the greatest Christian holiday I could visit it as well. Spacious inside, holy atmosphere. Staff inside was informative and helpful.
