Travel video about Sofiysky Sobor destination in Ukraine.
In the center of Kiev, capital of Ukraine, a unique monument of architecture and culture dominates the upper city, Sofiysky Sobor Cathedral. The imposing four-level bell tower seems to still protect the oldest church dating back to the times of Kyiv Rus, a Ukrainian house of God that was inspired by the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. The most important treasures of the cathedral are its mosaics that are as fine as those found in Ravenna and Venice. They contain mostly religious motifs and the golden icons indicate their connection with the Roman-Eastern church. The interior with its enormous dimensions and gallery for the royal court, has managed to retain its original Byzantine character. The architecture of other countries, coupled with the ancient traditions of Russian stone architecture, created a unique beauty and perfection in eleventh century Europe. Today, Sofiysky Sobor is a museum. It was previously the center of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and the headquarters of the Metropolitan Bishop of Kiev.
