Sobor/Monastery with a very interesting store, quite
complete and cheaper than Lavra's. The main
cathedral is quite ugly but the nice old white stone
Church at the right side has a good monastic choir.
kievian voices were always the best ones.
Not far : Andryevsky Usviz (descent) an open market
with a HUGE choice of folk production (embroideries,
wood, stones, etc...) at the CHEAPEST prices (5/10
times cheaper than Russia), you'll find very nice
pieces suitable for analoy for 10 usd with various
colour, and folk costumes (old and new ones).
Beware extra weight a Kev Airport is charged 15
usd/kilo. Try also :

St Vladimir, St Sophia, St Andrew (baroque) are the
must + Village Pirohovo historical open-air museum
of all the regions of Ukraine (2 hours walking around
NB : upper Lavra still belongs to Governement, you
won't find any monastc services in Uspensky Sobor,
rather go to Trapeznaya Tserkov (monastic services
for Great Feasts, with 2 full choirs) or to
Exalatation of Cross Church (lower Lavra) for everyday
monastic service. It's near the entrance to the Near
Caves. Also usually there is moleben celebrated once a
day in one the the Far Caves chapels. Ask which one
and at what time. Only people who appear to monks
interested in Orthodoxy and not curiosity are given an
answer. If you go to Lava on a Feast Dayor Sunday,
it's open for the faithfulls (free entrance) and
closed to tourists, and you can have a real Orthodox
Caves visit with other pilgrims.
