“The Holy Dormition Kiev-Caves (“Kiev-Pechersk”) Lavra is the first and the most ancient monastery on the territory of contemporary Ukraine. At present, only three monasteries are endowed with the status of “lavra” and all are consecrated in honour of the Dormition of the Most Holy Theotokos, they are: Kiev-Caves Lavra, the Pochayiv Lavra and the Holy Mountains (“Svyatogorsk”) Lavra. This bears witness of the special veneration of the Most Holy Mother of God by our Orthodox people and is a testimony of the close ties between the monasticism of Kievan Rus and the ancient skete of the Dormition on Mount Athos. The monastery was founded in the mid-11th century by the venerable Anthony and Theodosius of the Caves (of “Pechersk”). The incorruptible relics of more than 120 saints currently rest in peace in the caves of the monastery. Some of the saints (“God-pleasers”) are known all over the world such as venerable Nestor the Chronicler, the venerable Ilya of Murom (his amazing feats of strength continue to be recounted in folk tales. He wasn’t a fictitious fairy-tale character but a real-life bogatyr-warrior, who actually existed and who later on took monastic vows) and the venerable Agapit of the Caves, the unmercenary physician. For over a millennium, innumerable miracles and healings have occurred as a result of the many prayers that have been said to all the venerable fathers of the Kiev-Caves. ”
