“St. Andrew's Church is a major Baroque church located in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine. The church was constructed between 1747 and 1754, to a design by the Italian architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli. It is sometimes referred to as a cathedral. The church is part of the National Sanctuary "Sophia of Kyiv" as a landmark of cultural heritage. The church has no bells, as according to legend, their noise would cause flooding of the left part of the city. St Andrew's Church overlooks the historic Podil neighborhood, situated on a steep hill to which the church gave its current name—Andriyivska Hill. It is currently one of four architectural landmarks of Ukraine, which were put down on the List of Mankind Treasures of Five Continents by the world society.”

Premise
“В 1852 році Філарет, митрополит Московський, запропонував збудувати у Києві храм на честь майбутнього дев'ятисотріччя Хрещення Русі київським князем Володимиром. Громадяни з усіх частин Російської імперії почали масово жертвувати кошти на храм і в 1859 загальна сума пожертв досягла 100 000 російських карбованців. Спорудження храму розпочалося в 1862, а закінчилося в 1882. На урочистому освячуванні собору, що відбулося 20 серпня 1896, був присутнім імператор Микола II з дружиною Олександрою Федорівною. У радянські часи собор залишався діючим храмом, виконуючи функції кафедрального собору Києво-Галицької митрополії Російської Православної Церкви. Хоча спроби закрити були. Так, в серпні 1929”
