Even as the Kiev authorities continue to attack the Holy Dormition-Kiev Caves Lavra, seeking to completely remove holy Orthodoxy from it and restricting access to the faithful, the Kyiv Digital resource has developed a virtual tour of the churches and caves of the holy site.

The online tour is available in both Ukrainian and English with audio accompaniment.

The tour shows the Holy Dormition Cathedral, the Refectory Church, Cathedral Square, the Great Lavra Bell Tower, and the Far and Near Caves. However, unlike the churches of the Upper Lavra (from which the Church has been completely banned), where various icons and monuments are described in the tour, the names of the dozens of saints who repose in the Caves are not indicated, reports the Union of Orthodox Journalists.

Take the tour at Kyiv Digital.

Virtual tours of both the Holy Dormition-Svyatogorsk Lavra and Kiev’s St. Sophia Cathedral were launched in January 2020.
