The author of the article referred to “colourful old houses, dome churches and the cobbled street known as the Andriyivskyy Descent.”


“Pastel-hued St Andrew’s Church, at the top of a steep hill in the historic Podil district of Kyiv, has wonderful baroque architecture. But what really sets this church apart from the many others is the viewing platform, accessed for a mere 60p, which affords magnificent 360-degree views of the city,” remarked the author.
