City panoramic tour. Excursion to Kyiv Pechersk Lavra. (more…)
Kiev Pechersk Lavra or Kyiv Pechersk Lavra (Ukrainian: Києво-Печерська лавра, Kyievo-Pechers’ka lavra), also known as the Kiev Monastery of the Caves, is a historic Orthodox Christian monastery which gave its name to one of the city districts where it is located in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. Since its foundation as the cave monastery in 1015the Lavra has been a preeminent center of the Eastern Orthodox Christianity in Eastern Europe. Together with the Saint Sophia Cathedral, it is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The monastery complex is considered a separate national historic-cultural preserve (sanctuary), the national status to which was granted on March 13, 1996. The Lavra also not only located in another part of the city, but is part of a different national sanctuary than Saint Sophia Cathedral. While being a cultural attraction, the monastery is currently active. It was named one of the Seven Wonders of Ukraine on August 21, 2007, based on voting by experts and the internet community. Currently, the jurisdiction over the site is divided between the state museum, National Kiev-Pechersk Historic-Cultural Preserve, and the Ukrainian Orthodox Church (Moscow Patriarchy) as the site of the chief monastery of that Church and the residence of its leader, Metropolitan Volodymyr. In the late 2010 a monitoring mission of UNESCO was visiting the Kiev Pechersk Lavra to check on situation of the site. According to the Minister of Culture Mykhailo Kulynyak the Kiev's historic site along with the Saint Sophia Cathedral is not threatened by the "black list" of the international organization.

Free time. Visit to St. Andrews descent. (more…)
The Saint Andrew's Church (Ukrainian: Андрiївська церква; Russian: Андреевская церковь) is a major Baroque church located in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine. The church was constructed in 1747–1754, to a design by the Imperial Russian architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli. It is sometimes incorrectly referred to as a cathedral. The Saint Andrew's Church overlooks the historic Podil neighborhood, situated on a steep hill to which the church gave its current name Andriyivska Hill. It is currently one of four architectural landmarks of Ukraine, which were put down on the List of Mankind Treasures of Five Continents by the world society.

3 Day
Visit to Kaniv. Taras Shevchenko Museum (more…)
The memorial museum on Taras' Hill is part of the Shevchenko national preserve, opened in 1925. It covers an area of 42 hectares including the sacred place of Ukraine's nation - the burial grounds of Taras Shevchenko, "Tarasova Svitlytsia" (the first folk museum of Kobzar, built with people's money in 1884, originally, a house where a sitekeeper lived), and the Memorial Museum dedicated to the poet's memory. The building of the Memorial Museum designed by architects Vasyl Krychevsky, who is considered an author of Ukrainian architectural modern style, and Petro Kostyrko was built in 1935 - 37. Architects designed a palace-museum associated with the image of a white Ukrainian house where a genius of the Ukrainian nation was born and raised and which he never built on the shores of Dniper River in Kaniv. High-ceiling rooms were beautified with Ukrainian decorative murals, wooden ballusters on the second floor and parquette floors. The museum's collections count over 20,000 unique items including Taras Shevchenko's original engravings, rare editions of his poetic works, valuable archive documents, photographs, audio and video materials, Shevchenko memorabilia as well as art works of prominent Ukrainian artists including art works by Vasyl Krychevsky. Major renovation of the building took place in 2003 - 2010. First, it was decided to renovate the existing building with maximum approximation to the original architectural plan. However, the work completed in 2010 had serious deviation from the concept of Vasyl Krychevsky and Petro Kostyrko.

Excursion to architectural complex “Ukrainian village». (more…)
The main objective of the Ethnographic Complex “Ukrainian Village” is to revive in the hearts of ordinary Ukrainians love to Ukrainian spiritual roots: faith, people, state, culture, and family life. At various times, our people were oppressed by different enemies which had one goal in common – to conquer us. The most effective way to enslave the entire people is to eliminate memory of its roots. In this way, especially during the last century, have been eliminated our spiritual values and culture. Extermination was tremendous – millions of Ukrainian people were killed, numerous churches were demolished, language and culture were violated. Nevertheless, memory about the native culture and love for it prevented the invaders from prevailing completely. Due to these factors, Ukrainian people could withstand the hard times. Our complex has been founded for everybody who cares about their origin and native land to give an opportunity to see with their own eyes greatness and beauty of the Ukrainian land and its people. Having come to “Ukrainian Village”, you remember of your own roots and identity; through the house of God you can get deeper into your soul and closer to God; familiarizing with Ukrainian traditional architecture, family life, and folk handicrafts, you might feel yourselves descendants and associates of the mighty Ukrainian people and its culture, and observing extremely beautiful nature – forest, flowers, neatness – you might feel an urge to create similar beauty on a piece of land in your surroundings. In such a way, keeping in memory our traditional culture, loving the native land, and applying joint efforts, our people will live happily and make Ukraine a beautiful country.
