Kiev Pechersk Lavra (Києво-Печерська лавра)

I didn’t do the usual mix of things here – for example, I did not visit the caves. Unfortunately, there were a lot of interiors where it was not possible to take photos. My actual priority was the museum with the Scythian and Sarmatian exhibits.

The bells are quite noisy. However, quite a few people believe that they cleanse the air of evil – which was actually their original function. Therefore, I have recorded them and posted them on YouTube. Just note that you may want to check that your speakers are not on full volume!
