This cultural,religious and historical place will impress you by its beautiful monuments. Besides you'll see there was buried Stolipin - the famous reformator.

One of the oldest monastery in Kiev and has an impressive network of tunnels. No wonder it's also known as the Kiev Monastery of the Caves. The entire complex comprises of the ornate Great Lavra Belltower and 3 separate churches, as well as the caves (tunnels) with underground living quarters and chapels.
Rumours suggest that the catacombs stretched for miles and miles, reaching as far as Moscow and Novgorod in Russia - didn't get to go that far but it certainly was fascinating!

Iconic golden rooftops - a working monastery and a really special place to visit.

Pecherska Lavra is a working monastery, series of churches, and underground caves. It is one of the holiest sites in the whole of the country, with a long history going back to 1051 when the monastery was founded as an underground church. Despite it being one of the top sites in Kiev, Percherska is definitely a place of prayer and pilgrimage before a tourist attraction.

The cultural and religious place, good for walking, thinking and praying as well. Amazing views, green streets, nice and helpful stuff - everything will make your visit unforgettable! Fabulous impressions are guaranteed after going down to the caves: ask anything from dead imperishable saints.

Υπέροχο μέρος. Από τα καλύτερα αξιοθέατα του Κιέβου. Είναι ένα συγκρότημα μοναστηρίων και εκκλησιών, τα οποία με τους χρυσούς τρούλους, τις κατακόμβες και φυσικά την αρχιτεκτονική τους, δημιουργούν ένα τοπίο μοναδικό. Αξίζει να επισκεφθείτε το μουσείο με τις μινιατούρες. Το εισιτήριο εισόδου είναι πάρα πολύ οικονομικό.

Старинный монастырь, расположенный в самом сердце столицы. Множество храмов, пещеры с мощами Киево-печерских святых. Тишь и благодать.

Il Monastero delle Cave, un complesso costruito nel X secolo di Chiese e tunnel e cave, ancora oggi sedi attive di vita monastica, è un altro esempio della stupefacente architettura religiosa di Kiev, che ritengo clamorosamente sottovalutata.

Importante centro del cristianesimo ortodosso orientale dalla sua fondazione, il Pechersk Lava di Kiev è un monastero storico e probabilmente il monumento più famoso dell'Ucraina. Contiene un gran numero di monumenti architettonici (tra cui il campanile, uno degli elementi più notevoli dello skyline di Kiev) e la Cattedrale della Dormizione. La parte più incredibile è la grande rete di caverne e corridoi sotterranei.
