    This is Saint Sophia, buried deep in the snow after several nights of blizzard-like conditions. We walked here from Independence Square up and down slippery cobblestoned streets. I have possibly the worst shoes possible for walking around icy Kiev - Nike 5.0 running shoes. These things were built to "breathe", and not to protect against ankle-deep slush puddles.

    St. Sophia's cost about $1 USD to enter and walk around the grounds.

    This was almost destroyed by the Russian government after the revolution of 1917. They wanted to destroy the cathedral and convert the grounds into a park called "Heroes of Perekop", which was named after a Red Army victory in Crimea.

      Very impressive building. Looks particularly good in the snow with those colourful domed towers standing out nicely.
