Kiev Pechersk Lavra – National Historic-Cultural Monastery is the main place of religious worship for Ukrainian and Russian Orthodox, a unique architectural ensemble since the 11th century. Together with the Saint Sophia Cathedral, it is inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The monastery complex is considered a separate national historic-cultural preserve. Amongst the structures of the monastery complex of great importance is the Troyitska Nadbramma Church, also known as Gate Church of the Trinity. It was constructed during the years 1106 to 1108 and has never been ruined. So it has preserved its ancient appearance to the present days.
