Beautiful catholic church

We went by this church on our way to Occean Plaza in Kiev and it was a very beautiful church. Its a Catholic church I think and well worth a visit and sit down and reflect on life.

I recently attended a couple of chamber music/organ concerts in St. Nicholas Cathedral and they were easily among my favorite things I've done in Kyiv! Tickets are very reasonably priced and it's a wonderful way to see a local landmark. Concerts are hosted almost nightly and performances are advertised on signs outside the cathedral. The cathedral itself is of fairly... More

While this church is sometimes used as church, it is more famous for its organ and concerts of different kind starting from organ music and ending with small orchestra and opera solo singers concerts. The building repeats gothic style, it is something like neo-gothic or something, quite interesting to see this style in this part of the world. The cathedral... More

This is one of the few catholic churchs of Kiev. What makes it special is that the everyday classical music - organ concerts.

This is a beautiful gothic-style Roman Catholic church located not too far from Olimpiskiy Metro Station - the outside is much more impressive than the outside, but the real treat of this location is going to an organ concert here! There are several per week and are between $3 and $10 per ticket - plus, you can reserve tickets online.

Built in the Gothic style the Cathedral imposes itself upon the locality. Has concerts and singers throughout the summer. Certainly worth a visit.

The cathedral is very,very gothic, but it is used for religious services and concerts.The organ, unlike in other churches is situated in the front. I went for an organ concert and opera singing and the quality of the organs (Riedel) and singers were fabolous. It has lost the energy of spirituality churches usually have and it has normal chairs which... More

Very beautiful Cathedral in the central part of Kiev usually stays unnoticed, but is very beautiful and definitely worth a visit.
