The Sofia cathedral — one of the main sights of city. The majestic 13-dome temple has been named in honour of the well-known cathedral of sacred Sofia in Constantinople ("Sofia"— "wisdom" on greece). The cathedral has been incorporated by Jaroslav Mudrym (who is burried here) in 1037 in commemoration of a victory of an old russian army above pechenegy and for glorification of christianity. This temple was not only a cult construction, but also the center of a cultural and political life of the Kyivska Rus`. Here settled down Christian school for children and the first library based by Jaroslav Mudrym in Rus` which is delivers an invaluable material for scientists since our days. The Sofia cathedral has been connected to princely chambers, in it Jaroslav and his successors frequently accepted foreign ambassadors and signed the international contracts; near to a cathedral gathered Kiev vecha . It is difficult even to imagine, what impression on simple people of that time made this majestic temple, with his magnificent utensils, high vaults both polichromatic mosaics and frescos, the majority from which were kept up to now. The Sofia cathedral is national property of Ukraine. Near to a cathedral the stone belltower (height 76 i), built in 1699-1706 towers painted in blue and white colors. Originally the belltower was three-tier, the fourth floor with the gilt dome is completed in 1852. A belltower — a wonderful sample of the Ukrainian baroque.
