Illinska Church (XII century) and Anthony Caves

Павло Третяк
Anthony Caves (Antonievy Caves) is the unique piece of underground religious architecture, one of the few subterranean monasteries in Europe. The complex was established in 1069 by Anthony Pechersky, the founder of the famous Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra. In the 12th century the Church of St. Elias (Illinska) was built over the caves’ entrance, the only building of the kind that has remained intact by nowadays. #Antonievy #Antony #Caves #Chernigov #Chernihiv #Church #Elias #Illinska #Ukraine #Антониевы #Антонієві #Ильинская #Печери #Пещеры #Украина #Україна #Церква #Церковь #Чернигов #Чернігів #Іллінська
