We have started in Kyiv and can stay here a LONG time exploring churches. This is the cradle of Orthodox Christian faith as far as Russia and Ukraine are concerned. Wonderful Churches like Phiphonia, Kyrill (12th century) and the great histories associated with the Kyivian-Rus – the Christianization of the masses. More photos to follow as the tour continues. Next stop of major import on the Church Tour will be Chernegyv to the north of Kyiv.
