You will start the tour going along the Ally of Glory to the Monument of Glory that is also a communal grave of soldiers who died in 1939-1945; will come to the Eternal flame that symbolizes immortality of our heroes; look at Dnipro river and its left bank. You will also visit the “Memorial to Holodomor victims” and learn about the Law of Three Spikelets.

After that you will come to the shrine of Eastern Orthodox Christianity in Eastern Europe – Kiev Pechersk Lavra . This is the biggest, oldest and the most beautiful monastery in Ukraine representing a prominent historical and architectural legacy and an artifact of world heritage. Its walls are infused with holy belief and immense history. During the centuries it was a beholder and a participant of numerous political, cultural and scientific events. Governments changed each other and the Monastery gracefully adapted to those changes, always staying faithful to its parishioners. Here you will visit cave complexes and ancient churches, some of which are build in 12th century; will come to the highest point of modern Kyiv – Great Lavra Bell Tower and visit the Museum of miniatures. This place will meet you with silence and piece that contrasts to the fussy city.

And finish the tour by walking over the territory of World War II to museum and see the monument to Motherland.
