The Roman-Catholic church of St. Nicholas, built in the stylized Gothic forms with tall arrow spiers at the beginning of the 20th century, is one of the most beautiful buildings in Kyiv.

Construction began in August 1899, after a group of Catholics appealed to the governor of Kyiv with the request for permission to build a church. By that time, the city already had one Roman-Catholic church (Alexander Cathedral), but, given that there were more than 40 thousand Catholics in Kyiv, one cathedral was not enough.
