The rebuilt structure on the corner of Volodymyr street and Yaroslaviv Val Street (Yaroslav’s Moat) contains a branch of the National Sanctuary “Sophia of Kyiv” museum.




The name Zoloti Vorota is also used for a nearby theatre and a station of the Kiev Metro.The Golden Gates of Kiev (Ukrainian: Золоті ворота, Zoloti vorota) was the main gate in the 11th-century fortifications of Kiev, the capital of Kievan Rus’. It was named in imitation of the Golden Gate of Constantinople. The structure was dismantled in the Middle Ages, leaving few vestiges of its existence. It was completely rebuilt by the Soviet authorities in 1982, though no images of the original gates have survived. This decision has been immensely controversial, since there are many competing reconstructions of what the medieval gate might have looked like.
