An Orthodox monastery founded in the XI century on the site of a former pagan temple where rituals were performed in honor of Perun, Svarog, Khors and other deities of the ancient Slavic pantheon. The first church on the site of the future monastery was made of wood. At the beginning of the XII century, in honor of the victory over the Polovtsy, the laying of the Cathedral of the Archangel Michael began, at which a monastery was established.

I visited just before the start of war, so my review is based on my experience at that time. Another beautiful historic religious building in Kyiv. Definitely going to visit again when things return to normal.

One of my favorite churches in all of Europe. A masterpiece of architecture.

Amazing piece of Ukrainian culture. Wish it would have more care for facades as they are great, however need a lot of work.

Beautiful. Definitely worth a look just to see all the artwork. It's mind-boggling. The priests chanting was very cool to listen to.

I would question anyone who gave this less than a five star review. Spectacular and a must see when in Kyiv.
The blue walls and golden domes of the exterior are very picturesque. The interior is quite impressive as well, and it is interesting to compare the fresh paintings here with the much older paintings in the nearby St Sophia’s.

The colour of the cathedral exactly matches the sky. That’s the reason they choose this colour to be closer to heaven. Brilliant and relevant. Inside it’s mesmerising. Also it’s different with no seats to sit, so services are made s.. Read more »
