This tour combines a visit to the first Cathedral in the eastern Orthodox lands with gilded domes and an amusing ride on the Kyiv’s Funicular. You’ll see a special place for making wishes on monastic territory. St Michael's Cathedral is like a phoenix bird, rising from the ashes and radiating blindingly with its beauty and grandeur. It is the first Ukrainian Temple with Golden Domes, particularly impressive on a sunny day. This tour will be a unique opportunity to admire the architectural beauty of a national treasure, enhanced by its golden dome and the combination of blue and white colors. Kyiv is also a hilly city and this tour will have a special amusement treat because... who doesn’t love a funicular? The Kyiv Funicular has been transporting people from the heart of the upper city to Podil (lower city) since 1905. We’ll take a ride to see both sides of the city and at the end we’ll take a walk to the Dnieper Embankment
