05/12/2014

St. Nicolas The Wondermaker Church is the first and only Ukrainian church built on water.

It appeared in Kyiv in 2004 and located in the Dnipro water area in 15m from the embankment.

There is a legend that it is exactly the same place where Prince Volodymyr baptized Kyiv. According to another legend the church is a gift from a family to St.Nicolas for saving their child (at the same place fishermen saved a child slipped out from his mom’s hands).

The church is 23m high and holds about 50 people. There one can find St.Nicolas icon which is more than 200 years old.
