Fantastic interior in a serene setting. It must be unforgettable during Palm Sunday. Frequented by locals, young and old. Visited throughout the day by believers. A peaceful retreat forgetting all our worries. Even for non-believers a must see.

The interior of this Cathedral is purely STUNNING. The location merely a block from the Kyiv Hilton Hotel andwalking distance from the Opera are well worth the visit.

It looks pretty cool on the outside, but I honestly wasn't expecting much on the inside; boy was I wrong! It is one of the prettier and more interesting churches I've ever popped in. It had lots of cool paintings, people lighting candles, and a...More

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.
