Saint Andrew’s Church
St. Andrew’s Church in Kyiv is one of the most striking Baroque buildings. Its architecture and location are genuinely unique. The church is built on an artificial hill, overlooking one of Kyiv’s oldest parts, and the foundation for it is
the terrace of a two-story building, with a cast-iron staircase. It has been twice hit by lightning, but the church is still flourishing and is open to the public for services and sightseeing tours.
