Pechersk Lavra Monastery

25 Sichnevogo Povstannya st
Kyiv , Ukraine
380 44 254-2257

The monastery began in a cave in 1051, with monks living in a series of underground compartments. Over the centuries, it expanded across many acres with the building of several churches, and the complex is still surrounded by high fortress walls. The monastery has been destroyed many times, but it has always been rebuilt, an emblem of Kievan Rus and Orthodox tradition.
