Discover the capital’s distinctive architecture at Kyiv Pechersk Lavra, the jewel in the city’s crown. A cluster of gold-domed churches mark this important monastery, nestled on a hillside high above Dnipro River. Explore its intriguing complex of churches and descend into the subterranean caves, catching glimpses of mummified saints and monks laid to rest in glass coffins. Head for St Michael’s, a blue-hued church that demonstrates Byzantine design at its best. Wander the exterior and be amazed by the 13 pear-shaped golden cupolas of this re-built landmark building - the original was torn down in 1937.
