Day Two Hundred Fifty-Seven

Ukraine - Kiev Pechersk Lavra, Kiev

Notes: This is Kiev Pechersk Lavra, or Kiev Monastery of the Cave.  It was actually founded in the 11th century in a cave overlooking the Dnieper River, and it is one of four cave monasteries in Ukraine.  There seems to be three separate buildings in this photo.  I have been unable to indentify the one on the left, but the tall tower in the middle is the Great Lavra Belltower, and on the right is The All Saints Church.  The monastery is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
