Departure to a fascinating day trip to Chernigiv. The distance from Kyiv to Chernigiv is 140 km.

On the half way you will make a stop at a small town Kozelets. The name comes from wildflowers “Kozelets”. Here you will visit a splendid Nativity of the Virgin Cathedral built in the 18th century. Inside the church you can see the iconostas made by the famous Russian architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli (Italisn in origin).

After that, you will arrive to the final destination – the city Chernigiv. It is one of the oldest cities of the Ukraine and this fascinating destination makes for an enjoyable day trip from Kyiv. Chernihiv is a pleasant and welcoming city that offers visitors an extensive history, interesting monuments and grand churches, all of which are set admits the parks and wide boulevards of the historic center.

The first sight all visitors see while traveling into Chernihiv is the tall five-domed baroque-style St. Catherine’s Church, which is positioned on the outskirts of the city on top of a hill. This baroque styled church dates from the 18th century, and has a white washed exterior and large golden domes.
