Old and young come for a moment of prayer and worship. Old icons and wax candles. Very fine interiour.

This cathedral is stunning inside and outside! On Sunday they ring bells that make your heart sing. It is right by a Botanical garden on one side and just a few blocks from Golden Gate.

Cathedral and nice church but there are beautiful and lists from it in Kiev, not necessary to go especially, most of the cathedrals in Kiev are beautiful and impressive from it. The complex is not large, the entrance is free of charge.

Our hotel was nearby, so we just walked by this cathedral. It is a small beautiful yellow cathedral, where you can take a rest sitting on the bench. However, the cathedral is actually in use, so I think we'd better not bother the people in...More

We stopped here for 20 minutes and it was a good experience. Visit when there is a service. It cost to take photos but works out about £1.00 to do so.

Mistic place. Some Christans saying that bas Devil power is there inside the church, because od frescas with Demon, by famous painter Vrubel. Colours are bit dark inside. Church was build in th 19-th centure. Must-visit place.

Very nice place. Beautifully decorated walls and ceilings. We were there during the prayer. The cathedral choir was amazing. Entrance is free. Did not ask if one can take photo. Out of respect for churchgoers we hadn't even thought of intruding by fhotographing. Lovely place

Yes this is one not to be missed. Amazing frescos and mosaics to be seen. As in all Cathedrals you are not allowed to take any pictures. Very beautyful.

Очень красивый собор, часто люблю в него заходить. Росписи на стенах можно рассматривать бесконечно... В соборе можно купить свечки от 1 грн, заказать различные услуги, купить церковную атрибутику...Персонал собора приветлив и спокоен. Несколько раз попадала в собор без платка - никто замечание не делал. Вокруг...More

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.

I think it was about 50 UAH or so. But you could always ask someone from visitors to help you with translation, most young people in Kyiv speak English
