The process of sanctification was attended by Bishop Bohdan (Dziurakh), General Secretary of the UGCC Synod of Bishops, clergy, donatives as well as the representatives from the administration of the park. "This is a symbolic event. Today we gave our blessing to the maquette; however, we hope that in a year we will sanctify our Patriarchal Cathedral. Next year we will celebrate the 1025th Anniversary of the Baptism of Rus’-Ukraine. The meeting of our Synod will take place in Kiev. We want to live to see the day, when with the help of God and with the support of our donatives in 2013, we will sanctify our Cathedral. So, let this blessing be a harbinger of a great sanctification”- said the UGCC Primate in his speech (to listen). Patriarch Sviatoslav expressed his gratitude to the Tokach family, on whose initiative and at whose expense this thumbnail image was created and established. “Thanks to you, our residents and visitors to the capital, who will stroll around this “miniature Kyiv”, will have the presence of UGCC, as an integral part of the architecture of the city, its history as well as modern days, in their minds”, said the Patriarch Sviatoslav to the donatives. On this occasion, the Head of the UGCC called all the faithful people as well as people of good will, to help with their donatives to complete the construction of the Patriarchal Center.

The diverse collection of buildings in scale 1:33, the park recreates modern Kyiv with its most famous architectural landmarks. Production of all the maquettes took almost four years. Photo-report
