Duration: 1,5 hours bus tour + 2 hours guided tour
Description: Once you are in Kyiv, visiting Saint Sophia's Cathedral is a MUST. The magnificent Sophia Kyivska, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a unique, wonderfully preserved 11 th century cathedral. Its interiors are decorated with the largest collection of 11 th century frescoes and mosaics in the world. The highlight of the cathedral is the main mosaic – the Virgin Mary of Oranta – beautiful Mother of God on a gold background. For 10 centuries she has been praying for the preservation of our city. We recommend seeing this unique sight with your own eyes and marvel how it was possible to build such a masterpiece one thousand years ago!
In addition to the interior, you can explore the beautiful territory around the cathedral, different expositions and, of course, climb up the bell tower to see the breathtaking panorama of Kyiv, opposite St. Michael's golden-domed Cathedral.
