The oldest Ukrainian monastery and 13 saints
We’ll explore the UNESCO World heritage venue – the orthodox monastery – Kyiv Pechersk Lavra.
We’re to stroll around the territory, visit st. Dormition cathedral, the example of Ukrainian baroque style, the Refectory church with its marvelous paintings and museum of microminiature, which was recognized #1 in Kiev by Tripadvisor several years ago.
Besides, we’ll experience the life of monks who initially lived in caves. Now caves is a burial place for over 120 monks, who were canonized as all Rus saints. It’s also a well-known pilgrimage place. Many people come here to get help by praying to first monk-doctor, monk-icon-painter, first scriber and a monk-founder of the monastery. All monks are known for miraculous healings.
