Tour around Kiev Pechersk Lavra
An important center of Eastern Orthodox Christianity since its foundation in 1051, the Kiev Pechersk Lava is a historic monastery and probably Ukraine’s most famous monument. It attracts millions of visitors — tourists and pilgrims alike — every year. It contains a large number of architectural monuments (including the Great Bell Tower, one of the most remarkable elements of Kiev’s skyline) and the Dormition Cathedral, completed in 1075 but destroyed during World War II and then rebuilt. The most incredible part is the large network of underground caverns and corridors, apparently built around the cave in which Saint Anthony of Kiev settled in the 11th century. Many saints were subsequently buried in those caves. Note that women have to cover their head to enter the Lavra.
