    Made in the Ukrainian Baroque style and is one of the oldest in Ukraine. Back in 1108, Prince Svyatopolk built a stone church, Dedicated to St. Michael, the archangel. St. Michael Cathedral was named Golden Domed and in those days, it actually was the only church in Kiev with golden domes. When Prince Svyatopolik died in 1114, they buried him in the cathedral built by them. St. Michael monastery was often plundered and destroyed by the Polish and the Tatar-Mongol invaders. However, the cathedral was many times restored and even expanded. In 1930, the monastery was destroyed again-but the communist this time. After Ukraine gained its independence in the mid 1990, the Michael golden-domed monastery was fully restored nowadays. This is the main Church of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kiev Patriarchate.

The Airy Doom of the Duomo

    What a wonder it is! So grand, so solemn, so vast! and yet so delicate, so awry, so graceful! A very world of solid weight and yet it seems......a delusion of frostwork that might vanish with a breath! The central one with its great doors is bordered with a bass reliefs of birds and fruits and beasts and insects, which have been so ingenously carved out of the marble that seems like living creatures...and the figures are so numerous and the design so complex, that one might study it a week without exhausting its interest. Everywhere that a niche or a perch can be found about the enormous building. From summit to base, there is a marble statue, and every statue is a study in itself...away above, on the lofty roof, rank and rank of carved and fretted spires high in the air, and through their rich tracery, one sees the sky beyond.

The Duomo, the Heaven Side

    (Up on) the roof...Springing from its broad marble flagstones, were the long files of spires, looking very tall close at hand, but diminishing in the distance... we could see, now, that the statue on the top of each was the size of a large man, though they all looked like dolls from the streets...They say that the cathedral of Milan is second only to St.; Peter's at Rome. .I cannot understand how it can be second to anything made by human hands.
