Caves Monastery in Ukraine

Rolling across acres of wooded slopes above the Dnipro, the Caves Monastery, also known as the Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra, deserves at least a half-day. It is the single most popular tourist site in the city, a highlight of visiting Ukraine and arguably the spiritual heart of the Ukrainian people.
Highlights include the striking early-12th-century Trinity Gate Church; the Refectory Church of SS Anthony & Theodosius, which sports the monastery’s famous gold-striped dome; and the Nearer Caves, with dozens of niches containing glass-topped coffins holding mummified monks’ bodies.
Address of Caves Monastery – Vulitsa Sichnevoho Povstannya 21, Central Kyiv.
