This is a truly stunning example of Neo-Byzantine architecture. A myriad of ornamented domes rise high above Rice Street, looking down on "Ukrainian Village" just as it did when erected in 1906. The church is based on the 11th century Cathedral of St. Sophia in Kiev, and this style of design shows stunningly without and within. The interior of the church was renovated in 1974 and is simply beautiful. There is a nine-tiered chandelier with 480 lights shining down from the tallest dome, and a series of Byzantine paintings adorn the altar and sanctuary.
