Saint Sophia Cathedral in Kiev is an outstanding architectural monument of Kievan Rus’.



The cathedral is one of the city’s best known landmarks and the first heritage site in Ukraine to be inscribed on theWorld Heritage List along with the Kiev Cave Monastery complex.[2][nb 1] Aside from its main building, the cathedral includes an ensemble of supporting structures such as a bell tower and the House of Metropolitan. In 2011 the historic site was reassigned from the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Regional Development of Ukraine to the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine.[4][5] One of the reasons for the move was the fact that both “Sofia Kyivska” and Kiev Pechersk Lavra are recognized by the UNESCO World Heritage Program as one complex, while in Ukraine the two were governed by different government entities.

In Ukrainian the cathedral is known as Sobor Sviatoyi Sofiyi  or Sofiyskyi sobor.

The complex of the Cathedral is the main component and museum of the National Preserve “Sophia of Kiev” which is the state institution responsible for the preservation of the Cathedral complex as well as four other historic landmarks across the nation.
