    Great place, about the history and the greatness of which there is a lot of information, I will not repeat will give some practical advice. They need first of all to those who decide to visit Lavra independently (for organized pilgrims all solved differently). 1. Will certainly try to allocate to visit at least a full day, that is, to spend the night in pochaev need two nights. In this case, you will have time to visit Svjatoduhov monastery, and the source of St. Anne (all this on a small, but all the same distance from Pochayiv). 2. the Lavra has a dress code: women need necessarily skirts, covered the shoulders and shawls, men-pants and minimum-shirts or t-shirts (not t-shirts!). Women skirts will be given, and men in shorts just won't be allowed. Skirts in rental entrance to monastery, there is a break for lunch from 13 to 14. I did not took, I don't know, but women in skirts. 3. try to visit the temples in the morning, then opened access to the foot of the mother of God, and you can get into the cave of job. In the area of lunch in the temples, generally, cleaning, and sometimes may not even allow to place candles, if clean postavcy. 4. Better come on weekdays, people significantly smaller, easier to book a hotel and calmly to visit all the churches and sights. During the holidays people pretty much go service and just so for themselves in temples and promol look like.

    Visited Holy Dormition Lavra on the Trinity. While this is not the first time, anyway-I admire this site: monumentality and grandeur of the buildings, with meager Entourage terrain, mesmerizing ... Complex acting, for pilgrims all organized at the proper level: spacious hotel with neat asketichnymi rooms, the food is very well thought out (without meat dishes, but a decent range) of the attractions we would note the temple Job of Pochaev, Preobrazhensky Cathedral (not yet open), Trinity Cathedral and of course the assumption Cathedral (where the foot and the miraculous icon of the mother of God) Separately recommend visiting St. Dukhovskoy skit (not far from Lavra)-you can see the Miraculous cross PDP. Nikita Stylites Pereyaslavl, icon of the PDP. Seraphim of Sarov with mantle and relics.

  • It's a shame that a holy place with a great history has been turned into a something profit - orientated under the reign of moscow patriarchate...
  • Pochayiv Lavra - one of the greatest shrines of the Orthodox world, the second most important in the territory of Ukraine after Kiev Pechersk Lavra.
  • The mental place that show walked the monastery tour, learned a lot of interesting stuff, but as always watched all galloping, and wanted to stay longer. Be sure to try to get into the cave, it is not always the case. Dining on the territory of feeds is very tasty.

  • Those who wrote about the business, do not forget that kostelah and churches AK too stand for donations. On the territory of Lavra lowest prices on accommodation and catering, lunch for one person would cost 25-30 UAH, a room 50uah.
