Trend tourist Kiev 2019

Kiev can surprise everyone: a tourist who first came to the capital, as well as the indigenous people who live here for years. After all, you can live here all your life but never visit its scenic spots.

Kiev Pechersk Lavra

The Kiev Pechersk Lavra is one of the first monasteries founding in Russia. It was built in 1051 under Yaroslav the Wise by monk Anthony who was from Lyubech. Co-founder of the Pechersk monastery was one of the first students of Anthony — Theodosius.

Currently, the Lower Lavra is under the authority of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchate), and the upper Lavra is under the jurisdiction of the National Kiev Pechersk Historical and Cultural Center.

Chernobyl and Pripyat


Underground reservoir

Who would have thought that in the very center of the capital, on Vladimir descent, is an old underground reservoir of the XIX century. If you like abandoned industrial objects, you will definitely like this underground kingdom. To get to the reservoir, you need to go through the tunnel.

Nicholas Church

Oddly enough, few tourists know about this magnificent structure. And seeing the photos taken near the church of St. Nicholas, they are surprised that this is Kiev, and not Lviv or even Vienna.

St. Nicholas Church is a unique building of its kind, which is more than a century (it was built for 10 years — from 1899 to 1909). In 2001, it was visited by Pope John Paul II.


St. Vladimir's Cathedral

Vladimir's Cathedral was built in honor of the Grand Duke Vladimir, who has introduced Christianity in Russia in 998. The cathedral is decorated in the old Byzantine style traditional for Russian architecture. The interior of the temple was created by such famous artists as Viktor Vasnetsov and Mikhail Vrubel.
House with cats
As it's easy to guess, it got its name because of the animals that can be found on the facade. The building is also called the "castle of Koshchei". They say this is someone's joke related to the architect's last name — V.A. Immortal.
