Kiev Pechersk Monastery, the Holy Caves, & the Historical Treasures Museum

Kiev, Ukraine

From (USD) $57 Per Person (Based on 2)

Highlights
  • Holy Dormition Cathedral: Originally built in the 11th century, the cathedral was redone in baroque style after a fire in 1718. Almost destroyed during World War II, it was rebuilt to its original splendor.
  • Holy Caves: This system of underground passages includes three cave churches and cells for the monks. You can see medieval relics, as well as the mummified remains of Orthodox saints naturally preserved by the cool, dry temperatures.
  • Historical Treasures Museum: Inspect one of the richest collections of Scythian gold, with articles going back to the 4th century B.C., including the complete burial collection of a Scythian queen and her child.
  • Syadristy Microminiatures Museum: A rose inside a hollowed hair, a complete chessboard on the head of a pin, camels and a pyramid in the eye of a needle are just some of the marvels you'll see.
