Create an itinerary including St. Volodymyr's Cathedral
With its seven domes crowned by gilded crosses, the lavish silhouette of St. Volodymyr's Cathedral rises above the winding streets. Dating back to 1859, the church was built from donations from residents of the Russian Empire and the other churches, which took about 37 years to collect. The 49 m (161 ft) yellow-and-blue structure showcases a Neo-Byzantine architectural style, an outgrowth of Roman building techniques. Inside you'll see mosaic decorations produced by prominent Venetian artists. Notice frescoes of famous local painters, opulent bronze busts, and an iconostasis carved out of white marble from Tuscany.
