Description

Completed in 1973, this eye-catching gold-domed church visible from Chicago Avenue is much newer than the other grand churches of Ukrainian Village. Saints Volodymyr & Olha Church follows the Byzantine-Ukrainian style of the 11th-13th centuries—with a strong preference for circular patterns and almost no sharp angles. The exterior of the building features a mosaic above the entrance that depicts the Christianization of Ukraine. The interior is both one of the grandest and one of the most intimate in the city. Its signature features are attractive stained-glass windows and a vibrant blue and gold color scheme.
