Pochaiv Monastery, St. Anna’s Sacred Spring and Kremenets Town

Sitting atop a 60 meter hill in Western Ukraine, surrounded by beautiful agricultural countryside, with stunning sunrise and sunset views, is the historic monastery complex of Pochaiv. Open to visitors and faithful alike, Pochaiv is an architectural and artistic treasure trove of cathedrals, chapels, shrines and altars adorned with mosaics and frescoes and home to two of the holiest icons of the Ukrainian Christian tradition. A 65-meter bell tower, a glorious outdoor altar, cave shrines and chapels, all are part of Pochaiv’s unique combination of Orthodox and Catholic art and architectural traditions.
Close to Pochaiv is Saint Anna’s Sacred Spring, a small site containing a beautiful garden, a charming cathedral and its famous water well and spring. All buildings reflect Ukrainian rural cultural traditions of color and design.  It’s most sacred tradition is the outdoor pool where one can swim for joy or salvation in the purest water imaginable; for those who wish to swim, dressing facilities are available onsite. Close by Saint Anna’s spring is the charming town of Kremenets with numerous churches and authentic Ukrainian restaurants such as can only be found in traditional rural areas.

Travel Arrangements:

You will travel by private premium-class car or van, with a driver who will follow your time schedule, providing safety, comfort and convenience. The drive to Pochaiv is through mostly rural countryside providing a glimpse of agricultural life and pleasant scenery.

You will leave Kiev at 9 am, with a stop for lunch, arriving Saint Anna’s Spring between 3-4 pm, where you will be met by an English speaking guide. After visiting the church and spring, a walking tour of Krements and its sites and a traditional Ukrainian dinner completes the day’s activities.

By special arrangement, you will stay within the Pochaiv monastery precinct in a pilgrim’s guest hotel recently remodeled to 3-star European standards. Walking at night within the monastery precinct is especially pleasant on long warm summer evenings.

The following morning at whatever time you wish (many pilgrims arrive before sunrise) your guide will accompany you on your visit around Pochaiv, either briefly or throughout your stay, as you wish. Whether seeking quiet reflection, a walk alone, or a guided tour with in-depth information on the art, architecture, history or religious aspects of Pochaiv, your wish is your itinerary.

After visiting Pochaiv, you will stop again for a specially-arranged Ukrainian lunch in Krements before driving back to Kiev, arriving between 7-8 pm.
Dinner and lunch, cooked fresh and served in a private room, will be arranged according to your dietary wishes: with or without meat, fish and poultry; with or without wine; eat as much as you wish, no one ever leaves a Ukrainian table hungry. Ukrainian musical entertainment is available upon request at no extra charge.
