About the tour

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.
