a tour over a territory of one of the greatest monasteries in the world
Kyiv Pechersk Lavra Monastery is the main shrine of Ukrainian Orthodoxy and represents a prominent historical and architectural legacy and an artifact of world heritage.
Monastery's walls are infused with holy belief and immense history. Since long ago Orthodox Christians come to Kyiv just to pray hoping to cleanse away their sins. Kyiv Pechersk Lavra is the biggest, oldest and the most beautiful monastery in Ukraine.
Being found in the 11-th century, it was a beholder and a participant of numerous political, cultural and scientific events. Governments changed each other and the Monastery gracefully adapted to those changes, always staying faithful to its parishioners.

This was my third day tour with Anna. She was gracious to help me with a few additional errands - like getting a local metro card and assisting with my ticket purchase at the Motherland statue. Again - a pleasant encounter.
