    Kiev Pechersk Lavra (Ukraine, Kiev)

    Kiev Pechersk Lavra is the cradle of Russian monasticism and one of the most revered monasteries in the Orthodox world. Aside from serving as a lovely subject for your analogue photos, this location also has a very interesting story which dates back to the XI century.
