Afterwards, we begin our sightseeing of Kyiv with a city tour which includes: Khreshchatyk Boulevard, Volodymyr’s Hill, Kyiv National University, the Opera House, St. Volodymyr’s Cathedral and the 11th century Golden Gate. The highlight of this tour is St. Sophia Cathedral, constructed in the 11th c. by Prince Yaroslav the Wise. The construction reflects a strong Byzantine influence, and its interior is a unique harmonious union of mosaics and fresco paintings. Directly opposite St. Sofia (about 500 m.), you will visit the newly (1999) reconstructed St. Michael’s Sobor.

Halfway between Kyiv and Chernihiv, we approach the sleepy town of Kozelets, where the “Nativity Of the Virgin” Cathedral complex (built in 1763) greets you. Kozelets is a real treat for historians, because of the unusual role it played in central and eastern European power games. Empress Elizabeth secretly married a local Cossack, Oleksiy Rozumovsky, and under his influence she showed good will towards Ukraine.
Arriving in Chernihiv, one cannot help but notice the brilliance of the golden domes of the various churches and cathedrals. Christianity came to Ukraine in 988, and churches began to be built during the reign of Volodymyr the Great, the prince who converted Ukraine to the new religion. In Chernihiv, there are several architectural examples of Ukrainian Baroque and the Classicist style. The churches that will be visited in Chernihiv: Illinsky Church, Boryso- Hlibsky Cathedral and the Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral. These landmarks have hardly changed since the time they were built in the 11th and 12th centuries.

[image_frame width=”270″ height=”190″ style=”framed_shadow” align=”center”] http://www.scopetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/21.jpg[/image_frame] [image_frame width=”160″ height=”190″ style=”framed_shadow” align=”center”] http://www.scopetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/22.jpg[/image_frame] [image_frame width=”270″ height=”190″ style=”framed_shadow” align=”center”] http://www.scopetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/23.jpg[/image_frame]

The Spasky Cathedral (built in 1036), later renamed Spaso-Preobrazhensky (Cathedral of the Transfiguration of Our Saviour) is Chernihiv’s oldest and most visited church. It witnessed many historical events, one particularly tragic for Ukraine. It was in this church that the blessing for the union with Russia was given in January, 1654. This union proved to be disastrous for Ukraine, and over three centuries passed before Ukraine was able to regain her independence.

[image_frame width=”270″ height=”190″ style=”framed_shadow” align=”center”] http://www.scopetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/24.jpg[/image_frame] [image_frame width=”270″ height=”190″ style=”framed_shadow” align=”center”] http://www.scopetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/25.jpg[/image_frame] [image_frame width=”270″ height=”190″ style=”framed_shadow” align=”center”] http://www.scopetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/26.jpg[/image_frame]

Baturyn served as the official residence and administrative capital of the Ukrainian Hetmans. After Ivan Mazepa was elected hetman of Ukraine in 1687, Baturyn began to flourish as the capital. Travelers from distant lands were impressed with its grandeur. In November, 1708, Tsar Peter I learned about Mazepa’s alliance with his staunch enemy, Swedish King Charles XII, and he ordered Russian forces to destroy the city and kill all the inhabitants. Only one building was left standing. It belonged to Kochubey, the Attorney General, who opposed Mazepa and supported the Russian Tsar. It was this support that saved Kochubey’s house from destruction. It is of a modest size, but its architectural elegance makes it a remarkable landmark. Today, Baturyn is a small town with whitewashed houses and shady gardens, a place of long ago glory.

Its complex of churches reflects a unique Ukrainian baroque style which is only surpassed by the beauty of the newly reconstructed Uspenskyj Cathedral (1998), destroyed by Soviet mines in 1941. The labyrinths of the “near” and “far” caves hold over 115 burial niches containing remains of St. Antoniy, Nestor the Chronicler, and many religious and political leaders.

This “museum city” is renowned for its diverse historic architecture, but the real “wow” is the immense canyon that completely encircles the old city.

Situated in the western part of Ukraine, Lviv, the “City of Lions”, is its heart and soul. Founded in the 13th c. by King Danylo Halytckyj, it was named in honor of his son Lev (Leo). Through centuries of Polish, Austrian and Soviet occupation, Lviv was the gateway to “the East”, but with independence in 1991, Lviv is finally free to develop its own Ukrainian identity.

Situated in the western part of Ukraine, Lviv, the “City of Lions”, is its heart and soul. Founded in
the 13th c. by King Danylo Halytckyj, it was named in honor of his son Lev (Leo). Through
centuries of Polish, Austrian and Soviet occupation, Lviv was the gateway to “the East”, but with
independence in 1991, Lviv is finally free to develop its own Ukrainian identity.

Easter is a family holiday in Ukraine,and Lviv is the best place to witness this atmosphere. It is here that the family spirit is present on every square and street where traditional Easter folklore celebrations, fairs, concerts and theater performances take place. Famous Ukrainian Easter eggs, embroidery, ceramics, decorations, woodcarvings attract guests to the Easter Markets.
Pysanka (Easter eggs) Festival in Lviv will fill the city with the spirit of Easter. This event will glorify the millennia-old tradition of observing the holiest holiday in the Christian world.

[image_frame width=”290″ height=”210″ style=”framed_shadow” align=”center”] http://www.scopetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/12.jpg[/image_frame] [image_frame width=”320″ height=”210″ style=”framed_shadow” align=”center”] http://www.scopetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/13.jpg[/image_frame] [image_frame width=”290″ height=”210″ style=”framed_shadow” align=”center”] http://www.scopetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/14.jpg[/image_frame]

The main purpose of the festival is to promote Easter traditions and to decorate Lviv with the inherent symbol of Easter – eggs. During this period, Lviv will turn into an “Open Air Museum of Eggs,” where Easter eggs will be created and decorated with different materials.

[image_frame width=”150″ height=”210″ style=”framed_shadow” align=”center”] http://www.scopetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/15.jpg[/image_frame] [image_frame width=”320″ height=”210″ style=”framed_shadow” align=”center”] http://www.scopetravel.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/16.jpg[/image_frame]

“Easter in a Grove” Museum of Folk Architecture and Rural Life annually hosts the ethnographic festival “Easter in a Grove.” Lviv citizens and visitors can learn about the spring time traditions of this region and participate in the Easter celebrations.

Festival visitors will observe master classes in pysanka making. Both children and adults will engage in traditional Easter games. Among them – ‘Kryvyi Tanets’ (continuous dance), takes place on the central lawn of the museum. Throughout the day, on the main stage, you will hear spring songs and hayivky (special songs, which people sing only during Easter). Guests will enjoy performances of singers and folk and dance groups.
