  • Very good place at the bottom of the Botanical Garden. On the territory of several churches, they are all different interior design and size. Very friendly, clean, quiet, wonderful view of the Dnieper River. There is a well with holy water, a small shop with souvenirs made of amber and other delights.

  • The monastery is not very easily accessible, but it's worth it. Legend has it that the vydubitsky monastery built for protection from the curse. According to legend, after the baptism of RUS, Prince Vladimir, Kiev was cursed by the Magi in 1000 years. It is for this reason that the city had so many monasteries and churches, which was demolished by the Bolsheviks. In that place where there is the monastery opened portal and single travelers began to disappear, the monks closed the portal. They say there and still hold the ritual Jekzorcízma. On the territory of the monastery be grave Dosifei Kitaevskiy, damsel monk. The story of this woman. Over the monastery be Botanical Garden and a delightful view of the Dnieper and the Paton bridge. The first bridge in which the applied welding metal. In this place I want to come and come.
