The famous Kiev-PecherskayaLavra represents the cultural and religious heritage not only of Kiev, but also of all Ukraine.
Here you can find unique monuments and temples that have been preserved since the 11th-18th century!
Kiev-Pecherskaya Lavra was founded during the reign of Yaroslav the Wise and it is rightfully considered the Third Sanctuary of the Virgin Mary.
According to historical data, the future abbot of the Pechersk Cave Monastery Antony, as a newcomer, went on a pilgrimage to Athos and during the practice of the sacred monastery was blessed with his igumen.
After practice, he returned to the capital and began service in a cave on the Pechersk Mountain.
For more than 900 years this place has been an unshakeable refuge for its assistants and remains a true sanctuary for every Orthodox man.
