St Michael's Gold-Domed Monastery Museum

Lonely Planet review

St Michael's Gold-Domed Monastery's fascinating history is explained in great detail (in Ukrainian and English placards) in a museum located in the monastery's bell tower. The museum also explains the sad history of the neighbouring Tryokhsvyatytelska Church, destroyed by the Soviets in 1934. They then added insult to injury by building the gargantuan Ministry of Foreign Affairs (pl Mykhaylivska 1) on the site.
