Description

Saint Sofia’s Cathedral is one of the earliest cathedrals in Kievan Rus'. Its construction has been started in 1044 and lasted for 22 years. There were only two temples like this – in Kiev and Novgorod. In the Middle Ages Cathedral has been used as a public place where councils met and declarations about war and peace were announced.
