Construction has begun in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, of what will be Europe’s largest Orthodox temple. The Church of Resurrection, 120 meters high and capable of housing 5,000 worshipers, will belong to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church under the jurisdiction of the Moscow Patriarchate. It will have three altars and a four-level belfry. The future church compound will include a residence for the Metropolitan of Kiev and All Ukraine, a seminary, a TV studio and a hotel for pilgrims.
