Kiev - Kyiv
June 5, 2018
Once again, I climb the hill behind the Gintama Hotel towards Sophia Plaza and this time I wander down another steep cobbled street- *“Andrew’s Descent” - towards the Podil district.
Modern sculptures and murals adorn the quaint buildings.
St. Andrew’s Church (1754) is one of the highlights on this excursion. This stunning gold and blue traditional five-domed church was built by Italian architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli who also designed the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg.
