Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra in winter

The holiest place for pilgrims in Eastern Slavic countries, immense Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra is a place with a special spirit. You get this feeling once you enter its gate.

We fully explore Lavra during our Pechersk Walking Tour – caves, monasteries, churches, belltowers and unique museums.

Gold-domed churches are catching eyes with its beauty, especially now, in winter, being covered with snow.

How to get to Lavra: Metro Arsenalna (red line+the deepest metro station in the world), then take trolleybus №38, but it is preferrable to take a walk

 

TIP! Come to Lavra after 8 p.m. It is the time the entrance officially closes which means you will not have to buy a ticket, but you will still be able to enter. Not everyone knows it and there are not many people there at this time. You’ll get a better feeling of a place. After 10 p.m. you might find out that there is just you there and monks – strolling their way between churches and monasteries.
