We visited the summer when the sun was on the hill it was a little exhausting. But it's definitely worth it.

The Perchersk Lavra is one of the best places I've ever seen! The monastery complex is huge and there is SO much to see. I would recommend seeing the main building, the caves and the folk and miniature art museum. It is all breathtaking and so beautiful. The caves are a wonderful experience, you don't have to be religious, just cover your hair and skin and remember to have some change to hand for your candle. This is a must see!! Oh and the bell tower offers spectacular views of the city!
Very good place to visit while in the area! The site itself is very large! Lots too see. Many buildings to in and have a look around. The main church is amazing and the bell tower (extra cost of 65uah) is worth the trip up to see the views over the city! Caves are good too see but does get a little crowded. Spend about a few hours here easily
