St. Michael's Golden-Domed MonasteryKyiv, Ukraine
4.8 / 20
An Orthodox monastery founded in the XI century on the site of a former pagan temple where rituals were performed in honor of Perun, Svarog, Khors and other deities of the ancient Slavic pantheon. The first church on the site of the future monastery was made of wood. At the beginning of the XII century, in honor of the victory over the Polovtsy, the laying of the Cathedral of the Archangel Michael began, at which a monastery was established. In the square in front of the temple is a sculptural group consisting of monuments to Princess Olga, Cyril and Methodius, the Apostle Andrew.
