The national reserve St “Sophia of Kyiv” has developed a 3D-tour of St. Sophia Cathedral. From now on, everyone will be able to wander inside this architectural monument virtually and see it in great detail.

This was reported in the press service of the reserve.

St. Sophia Cathedral is a world-famous monument of architecture and monumental painting of the XI century. It is placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The date of foundation of the Cathedral is reported in the Chronicles as the years 1017 and 1037. The chroniclers consider the Great Prince of Kyiv, Yaroslav the Wise, the builder of St Sophia. The sources indicate that in this case, Yaroslav completed the initiative of his father Volodymyr.

Old Russian graffiti inscriptions on the frescoes of the Church, containing the dates 1022, 1033 and 1036, confirm the foundation of St Sofia by St Volodynyr - the Baptist of Rus.

Dedicated to the Holy Wisdom of God, the Cathedral, according to the creators, was supposed to promote Christianity in Rus.

For centuries, St. Sophia of Kyiv was the central shrine of Rus-Ukraine.

      Конфлікти закінчуться між нашою ПЦУ та УПЦ МП, коли ми почнемо будувати свої храми, а не заселятися в ті, які МП збудовані. Тут все легко...
