Tour description

Since its foundation as the cave monastery in 1051 the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra has been a preeminent center of Eastern Orthodox Christianity in Eastern Europe.

It is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The monastery complex is considered a separate national historic-cultural preserve.

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 in 2007.

The tour covers the areas around Lavra Monastery: The Park of Internal Glory, Holodomor monument, Motherland Statue, and Kyiv Pechersk Lavra views!

Lavra hills in itself it huge and needs a good 2-4 hours to My suggestion is if you want to see that, go on your own as the guide does not take you in but only shows you the place from If you are interested to explore more about the surrounding and get to know more about the history it’s worth taking the free walking your and then visit Lavra hills once you are done with the walking Marina was quite informative and pleasant.
