Fifteen centuries of civilisation has left an indelible stamp on the architectural and intellectual landscape of Kiev, and made the city a leading centre of culture, not just in Ukraine but in the whole of East Europe and Russia. Scores of museums, a proud legacy of theatre and a rapidly developing contemporary arts scene mean there's plenty of exhibitions, performances and activities for culture buffs to stick their claws into - whilst theology students shouldn't miss the sensational St. Sophia's Cathedral and the Pechersk Lavra. The latter is a vast complex of monasteries, churches, caves and museums and is considered the spiritual home of Orthodox Christianity.See on Map
