  • Sviatohirsk Lavra is filled with the history of antiquity and modernity. It is a tourist destination and for believers and atheists (enjoy the beautiful scenery and nature). A lot of talk about the Lavra has no meaning, it is a must see for yourself. Here I want to come back.

  • Holy Dormition Svtogorskaja Lavra in Donetsk oblast is located in 150 km from Kharkiv. It can be safely attributed to one of the biggest miracles and spiritual centers of Ukraine. Dreamt for a long time to get here and here, committed accidentally, had such an opportunity. Laurus takes a large area and consists of many buildings and structures in which housed the monastery, assumption Cathedral and other churches, the cave complex and much more. Entrance is free and just for visiting the caves you will be asked to make a small donation. We were lucky and we ended up at the service where could hear chanting monks and novices of the monastery. Very nicely. The monastery is situated on the Bank of the Donets Sevres with another bank which offers wonderful views of the entire complex. You can get here by public transport, but is much easier on the car. Please note that there is almost no parking convent so it's best to leave the car parked us in front of the bridge. To visit the monastery to better allocate at least half a day. If you wish, you can stay at one of the numerous hotels in the town nearby. Very nicely. Recommend.

  • I'll start by saying that I am an atheist. Respect the feelings of believers, therefore, in order to visit the territory put a scarf on my head. More in clothing expect for a believer not pointless. What I liked: neat, cozy countryside building-store room that his views do not disturb the harmony of the place. That is not good at the entrance to literally face control over acceptable clothing. Decals for donations in a broadcast form of tone. Near the Lavra okolachivajutsja saucy type of beggars who do not kljanchat, but require them if you must. So enjoy the view of the monastery I preferred the Hill on which flaunts monument to Artem. Upgrade is not short, but easy. Monument to Artem himself in a dangerous condition (as States a plaque and the Council not be suitable). But what to do if you want to consider top Severski Donets and Sviatohirsk Lavra? Bans won't stop here))

  • Great place. Shame about being under the reign of Russian Church. The security of the Moscow Patriarchate Cathedral today is represented by the Cossacks, separatists in the east of Ukraine.
  • Beautiful place, great views and history
  • COOL
  • Place interesting. Beautiful views, architecture. Set of pretty clean. Problems at roadblocks was not. For those who are very nice with massaging jets from the Dnieper, I advise you to go through the Kharkiv-Chuguev-raisin. The road is much better.

  • Very beautiful place. This year, even rode on a catamaran. Stunning views. Friendly staff, clean rooms, opposite the monastery, on the Bank of the river. The food is a bit trickier, nearby, mostly just pizza and burgers.
