Kyiv Pechersk Lavra Tour

Visit this great church complex — a historic Orthodox Christian monastery situated atop the right bank of the mighty Dnipro River


The Kyiv Pecherska Lavra church complex is a historic Orthodox Christian monastery situated atop the right bank of the mighty Dnipro River. The monastery was founded in 1051, today is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and was voted one of the Seven Wonders of Ukraine recently. There are truly few places in the world that are as strikingly beautiful and supremely tranquil. The complex includes 20 hectares of territory with 16 churches, two underground cave systems that contain the mummified remains of Orthodox saints and their relics, a central cathedral, seminary, and a (recently reopened after reconstruction) 96.5 meter tall bell tower. This is a deep cultural experience.

What people say about this tour.

Hello fellow travelers- If you are coming to the Ukraine and want to have some great fun visiting interesting places in the Ukraine, just take a minute and book a tour with Slava at Kyiv Friendly Tours. I can assure you that she will do her very best to make your journey to the Ukraine a pleasant one; just like she did for me! I would recommend her services to anyone who wants to have a wonderful time.

We booked Kyiv Friendly Tours based on a recommendation — and we were not disappointed. We took two tours with Slava (owner/operator) — the Mezhyhirya and Lavra Tour. Both were wonderful experiences. Slava is a delightful tour guide, with lots of information and she is able to give you a level of comfort during your tour that you are seeing the important things, and knows how to navigate both the location and the system. Mezhyhirya is the private residence of former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych — it is the epitome of opulence and decadence if not good taste and restraint. While we visited the compound, there were countless other visitors BUT our group was one of only 2 small groups that were allowed access inside the house and spa.

Kyiv Friendly tours organised 2 trips for us. Slava, our guide and owner of Kyiv Friendly tours was wonderful to deal with. My emails were answered quickly and she was very flexible with last minute changes. She is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. The first tour was a trip to Mezhyhiya, Yanukovych’s vast estate. The tour was fantastic. We spent over an hour inside the mansion. Slava knew when to give us information and when to step back and let us experience on our own. We also toured the grounds via a golf cart that had been arranged for us. Slava was very flexible and quickly agreed to drop our group off in city after the trip was finished. We were all impressed with this trip. The next day, Slava took 2 of our group on a tour of the Lavra. Our guests were once again charmed and impressed with Slava and her knowledge. I would highly recommend Kyiv Friendly tours and Slava to anyone who is visiting Kyiv.

Thanks Olga for a great tour of Lavra! We had a great time exploring the area, seeing the miniature museum and a fantastic lunch with traditional Ukrainian food. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in Ukrainian history and seeing one of the main sites in the city!
