“Picturesque”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

The blue and white building with its 5 domes stands out on Andrew's Descent down to the Podil area. The iconostasis wall is a lovely orange with gold frames around the paintings. The inside dome is covered with gold trim around its paintings. Don't miss it if you go to Ukraine.

“Beutiful chirch in beautiful place”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Really like it. It is on the hill. It can be seen from different places. When you climb there, you can see amazing views of the city. Also there is a very nice street next to it, where artists sell their works. ALso you can find souvenirs there

“Small yet beautiful church”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Work by Rastrelli, who's also worked on the renown Winter Palace & Catherine Palace in Russia. Resemblance in style can be found. Small but majestic with the bright turquoise-green & eyes blinding gold. Worth a quick drop by for pictures on your way to browse for souvenirs on the nearby streets.

“Gorgeous and worth a look”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Close to many other sights, lovely church and geat surroundings. Not too many tourists at this time of year, so easy to get great photos and enjoy the sights without being swamped by tourists.
