Built in XI century, great, calm place. But it is not easy to get there and back. I strongly recommend to take a taxi and then you will enjoy it.

Quiet, lovely, with a walk through a park to get there. What more could one want from a house of God? The sense of history (a Primary Chronicle copy was discovered here), the relative lack of tourists, the humble setting - Vydubychi is everything that...More

I first visited this Monastery in 2004 and have returned to it on many occasions when I am in Kyiv. My 2016 visit was just as spiritual and awesome as my first visit. Beautiful grounds encompass several internal monastery buildings. The holiness of the place...More

Well worth a quick visit ..... very nice & unique interior. Watch out for the scary Babushka guarding the front entrance, who was growling at me, for taking pictures :-))
