What does this mean? I feel like it's an idiom of some kind.

No, not an idiom.

I wish it was a sentence and not just an expression.

"There are big cathedrals and small churches in Ukraine" - "В Україні є великі собори та маленькі церкви"

Ukraine has many large cathedrals and many small churches.

In Ukrainian there is also word "Костел". "Cerkva" is only orthodox (and greek-catholic) church.

Костел is a loanword from Polish.
