"Amongst Ukraine's Seven Wonders"

One of the most sacred sites for the Eastern Orthodox Christian community, the venerated Kievo-Pecherska Lavra is a historic monastery that sits sprawled on a grassy knoll above the Dnieper River. Since its inception, this has been one of the most significant Orthodox Christian monasteries, and now finds itself listed as one of the Seven Wonders of Kiev. The site is home to some of the most notable architectural monuments in the city that date back to the 17th Century. The classical style Lavra Belltower and the Dormition Cathedral with its glistening gold cupolas are two of the most remarkable structures among the many monuments that dot this massive complex. While the museum near Upper Lavra houses a gleaming repertoire of historical items molded from Scythian gold, the subterranean catacombs that lay hidden in Lower Lavra house nearly 100 mummified monks.
