Travel report Kiev
Our city tip of Kiev was once described as the Jerusalem of the East due to its importance for Orthodox Christianity. And in fact one reads in the travelogues of its many remarkable churches and monasteries. Purely on this account a visit to Kiev is well worthwhile. Saint Sophia Cathedral, with its five naves and cross-vaulted dome, is even a UNESCO World Heritage Site. But Kiev Pechersk Lavra, the Kiev Monastery of the Caves, and St. Michael’s Monastery with its golden domes are also highly recommended. Travel writers also mention many monuments which collectively give visitors a glimpse of the turbulent history of the city. When it comes to relaxation, the travel reports recommend spending some time in the picturesque Botanical Garden of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences.
