Kiev's Golden Gate, which protected the walled city during Yaroslav's time.
This is actually a reproduction built in 1982 to celebrate the city's 1500th anniversary. The original was destroyed by invading Tatars in the 13th C., then what remained of the wall was coverd with earth in the 18th C.
That's a cathedral on the top.
