What to expect

Chernihiv is famous for its beautiful churches, rich history, and relaxed atmosphere of a small town. Located 140 km from Kyiv, this destination is a wonderful choice for a day trip from the capital of Ukraine.

The tour starts with the pick-up from your centrally located Kyiv hotel or apartment by a friendly local driver. Traveling by private vehicle, you will enjoy beautiful landscapes along the route. On halfway from Kyiv to Chernihiv, you will make a short stop in the small town of Kozelets, where you can admire the splendid Nativity of the Virgin Cathedral with a breathtaking baroque iconostasis, built in Italy. Once in Chernihiv, you will meet an expert guide and start a comprehensive 3-hour sightseeing tour. Chernihiv always competed with Kyiv in the times of Kyivan Rus. It was the capital of Chernihiv principality and today it has the biggest number of pre-Mongolian architectural sites.

Discover Transfiguration Cathedral, which claims to be the oldest church in Ukraine. Explore Chernihiv Detynets, fortified city center with a spectacular panorama overlooking Yeletsky Assumption Monastery from the 11th century, which you will also visit. Then, enter the magnificent baroque Trinity Monastery and enjoy the outstanding views from its high bell tower. Moreover, your guide will show you Borys and Glib's 12th-century church, where the sarcophaguses of Chernihiv princes are exhibit. The highlight of the tour is a visit to the famous Anthony’s caves. There is the biggest underground church in Ukraine and artificial labyrinths, dug out by the monks in the second half of the 11th century. Not far from the caves, there are Boldin hills that keep a lot of legends from the past.
