Kyiv/Kiev/Киев/Київ

St. Andrew's Church





The "Friendship of Peoples" arch - built,  ironically, less than a decade before nationalist movements began to develop across the USSR

Pechersk Lavra


20 Years of Independence



Enormous Soviet war memorial, holding the only hammer and sickle that I've seen left around here

Rumor has it that the statue is a bit top-heavy and could collapse in the future...
