Create an itinerary including St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery
Although Soviet authorities demolished the medieval-era original before World War II, St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery stands today reflecting much of its former glory. Deemed historically worthless by the Communist government and obliterated in 1936, the church was reconstructed by 2000 as a post-independence project of the Ukrainian government. Walk the cathedral grounds and marvel at the structure's array of golden domes and sky-blue paint. Admire the many depictions of its patron saint, the Archangel Michael, including the golden statue that sits high above the entrance. Be sure to visit the museum to see exhibitions displaying religious artifacts related to the cathedral and documenting its journey through history. To plan Kyiv (Kiev) vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • The original temple of the 12th century. The beauty is impressive. In August 2015, the Wall of Remembrance of the Fallen Defenders of Ukraine appeared on the walls of St. Michael's Monastery.

  • This place is part of our History!
  • Beautiful. Definitely worth a look just to see all the artwork. It's mind-boggling. The priests chanting was very cool to listen to.
