Kyiv is dominated by the Ukrainian Orthodox Church. (The Ukrainian church gained independence in 2019.) and is also called "Jerusalem of the East". It owns many churches and cathedrals like the St. Sophia's Cathedral, the Vydubychi Monastery, the St. Nicolas Prytysko Church, the St. Nicholas’ Church, the St. Andrew's Church, the Church of the Savior of the Berestovo and the All Saints’ Church.
The city's name was traditionally written "Kiev" in English. This is still the most common spelling. Under a transliteration system adopted by the Ukrainian government in October 1995, the name is "Kyiv." The United States Board on Geographic Names, as well as other authorities on geographic names, adopted the revised spelling in 2019.
