St. Sophia Cathedral in Kiev remembers a time when Kievan Rus looked to Byzantium for religious inspiration. St. Sophia Cathedral takes its name from the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. It shows the signs of many restorations and additions over the 1,000 years of its existence but maintains its historic significance.
