Andriyivskyy Descent (I).

Dear friends, today a few words and the pictures for you about Andriyivskyy Descent.

Andrew’s Descent is a historic descent connecting Kyiv’s Upper Town neighborhood and the historically commercial Podil neighborhood.

The pearl of Andriyivskyy Descent is St. Andrew’s Church. The church was constructed between 1747 and 1754, to a design by the Italian architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli.
