Kiev-Pechersk Lavra tour

 

According to UNESCO, Kiev-Pechersk Lavra is a world heritage monument. This is something that you definitely need to see in Kiev. It's not about religion. This is a unique culture recognized all over the world. Kiev-Pechersk Lavra is one of the most ancient monasteries of Kievan Rus. The monastery was founded in 1051. I must say that people knew how to choose a place! Very beautiful. It all started with caves. They are still preserved! In the caves made the burial of the monks. It is clear that the spectacle is an amateur. But everything is original. There is an opportunity to go through the labyrinth of underground caves and see the graves of various times. Beautiful ground facilities. Numerous wars that passed through Kiev led to destruction. Everything is restored. The reconstruction is made delicately and beautifully. Excursion to the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra is something that should not be missed during a visit to Kiev.

Kyiv Pechersk Lavra or Kyivo-Pechers’ka Lavra (Ukrainian: Києво-Печерська лавра: Kyievo-Pechers'ka lavra; Russian: Киeво-Печерская лавра: Kyievo-Pecherska lavra), also known as the Kyiv Monastery of the Caves, is a historic Orthodox Christian monastery which gave its name to one of the city districts where it is located in Kyiv.

 

Since its foundation as the cave monastery in 1051 the Lavra has been a preeminent center of Eastern Orthodox Christianity in Eastern Europe. Together with the Saint Sophia Cathedral, it is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The monastery complex is considered a separate national historic-cultural preserve (sanctuary), the national status to which was granted on 13 March 1996. The Lavra is not only located in another part of the city, but is part of a different national sanctuary than Saint Sophia Cathedral. While being a cultural attraction, the monastery is once again active, with over 100 monks in residence. It was named one of the Seven Wonders of Ukraine on 21 August 2007, based on voting by experts and the internet community.

 

Currently, the jurisdiction over the site is divided between the state museum, National Kyiv-Pechersk Historic-Cultural Preserve, and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate) as the site of the chief monastery of that Church and the residence of its leader, Metropolitan Onuphrius.
