Pilgrimage to the religious complex of Pochaivska Lavra, Ukraine

As you may know the biggest part of Ukrainians are Orthodox which is the branch of Christianity. In the Western Ukraine we have a special religious complex where millions of people from Ukraine and not only coming for pilgrimage. This place is called Pochaivska Lavra and you can see many of beautiful and sacrificed things here. During our last visit in October 2014 there was a misty morning which brought a special atmosphere to our pilgrimage trip.
