St. Sophia Cathedral preserves not only the 11th century masterpieces but also the artistic heritage of the Baroque.
Copper gilded entrance door is made by Kyiv masters in the end of the 17th - beginning of the 18th centuries. It is decorated with icons in oval medallions depicting archangels.
Carved in linden gilded Iconostasis was made by Kyiv masters in the middle of the 18th century. Two of its upper tiers were removed during the restoration work of the 19th century in order to open the mosaics of the high altar. To date, only the lower tier of the iconostasis is preserved. Images of Savior and Holy Mother are located on either sides of the Holy Gate. Next to them are the icons of Saint Sophia and Seven Saints.
