Ukranian churches

 After 1 week without any updates, i'm back. I haven't received many cards in the last days and that's really annoying but i've bought a few in Lisbon last week. 
These 3 from Ukraine arrived a few weeks ago and were sent by Galina "gayl".  

The Saint Andrew's Church is a major Baroque church located in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. The church was constructed in 1747–1754, to a design by the Imperial Russian architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli. It is sometimes incorrectly referred to as a cathedral.
The Saint Andrew's Church overlooks the historic Podil neighborhood, situated on a steep hill to which the church gave its current name—Andriyivska Hill. It is currently one of four architectural landmarks of Ukraine, which were put down on the List of Mankind Treasures of Five Continents by the world society. - in: wikipedia

This is the Church of the Exaltation of Cross, one of the numerous architectural monuments found in the Kiev Pechersk Lavra Monastery.  

And this is the wooden Church of the Ressurection in the village of Kysorychi, built in 1784.

There are really nice postcards!

I was in the churches from the first and second postcards during my trip to Kiev.

Kiev Pechersk Lavra has many another beautiful churches on its territory.
