Le monastère Saint-Michel-au-Dôme-d'Or (en ukrainien : Михайлівський золотоверхий монастир, en russe : Михайловский златоверхий монастырь) est un monastère ukrainien situé dans la ville de Kiev. Le monastère est construit sur la rive ouest du Dniepr, sur le bord d'une paroi rocheuse escarpée, au nord-est de la cathédrale Sainte-Sophie. Le bâtiment se trouve dans la « Ville Haute », noyau historique et quartier administratif de Kiev, et domine la partie commerçante de la ville, le quartier du Podol. C'est un modèle d'architecture de style baroque ukrainien.
Very interesting and beautiful. You should also see the bell tower, there's a beautiful view form up there
This is a very beautiful place! you can go inside for free. here you need to visit and enjoy the atmosphere. In winter season (New Year celebration) you can test with children.
A beautiful monastery, The St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery. You simply can't miss it if you visit Kiev. It's over 300 years old!
A beautiful church the entry to which is absolutely free. The only thing you'll need to pay for its the entry to the bell tower.
Beautiful place, with perfect views from Bell tower.
Outside is lovely but the inside is totally stunning. I was absolutely gobsmacked by the beautifully painted frescos, gold-leaf panelling and ornate decor. The ceiling, the walls, even the floor. No space was left unadorned with some form of intricate craftsmanship. Lucky enough to visit just as Sunday morning service was taking place at 10am. I am not a religious person, but the haunting choir music, the atmosphere, richly attired Orthodox Priests and an array of people in deep and personal prayer, it was a wonderful experience.
Beautiful church, beautiful Georgian choir and architecture.
Beautiful exterior with peaceful grounds surrounding. The bells on Sunday morning also sounded very nice.
Great and beautiful cathedral. Only downside is that photos aren't allowed on the inside.
St. Michael's Monastery is a sight to behold. On a bright sunny day, its golden domes' luster shines bright in all its glory. If you are a tourist, please note that photographs and being on your cellphone is prohibited inside. The inside is entirely gilded with many depictions of icons. You will see many people entering this monastery to pray to whichever icon they worship, so please be mindful that although it is open to tourists, you should behave as though you are one of the regular visitors as to show proper respect. :)
Free to access church in Kiev. Very nice decoration, smell of incense. Nice for Instagram pics
