The city is golden. Monasteries and temples of Kiev

Kiev always attracted people with its golden domes - ancient churches and monasteries: Vladimir Cathedral, St. Michael's Cathedral, St. Sophia Cathedral, Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, monasteries of Kitaevo and Feofanii, Florovsky Monastery, St. Andrew's Church and other shrines.

We tried to collect together in one round the main holy monasteries of Kiev: 

Compound of St. Sophia's Cathedral

the oldest monastery of Rus - Kiev-Pechersk Lavra

Florovsky Monastery in Podil

  Kitaev deserts - Holy Trinity Chinas Monastery

Holosievskaya desert with the relics of the Monk Oleksiy

Desert Feofaniya - Holy Panteleimon monastery.

In the program of the tour: railway travel from Kharkov, transport and excursion services, accommodation in Kiev at the hotel, meals, excursions around Kiev, Kiev temples and monasteries, reserve "Kiev-Pecherskaya Lavra".

We remind that we are not an ecclesiastical organization, and cult Orthodox shrines interest us more from an aesthetic and historical point of view. So we go to an aesthetic pilgrimage!
