Moreover, one of the most prestigious Ukrainian universities – the Kyiv Mohyla Academy, founded in 1659, is located here. You will also visit one of the most significant Orthodox churches of Kyiv, Florovsky Convent, founded in the 16th century. This place will amaze you with its peaceful atmosphere and perplexing history. Discover the Madonna Pyrogoshcha Dormition Church, which was ruined during Soviet rule and rebuilt at the end of the 20th century. Then, walking through the picturesque and vivid Sagaidachnogo Street, you will enter Poshtova Square, where you will admire the Church of the Nativity of Christ.
