Chernihiv is the birthplace of famous Ukrainian beer and a small and cozy city located on the banks of the Desna river. The city is full of churches. There's also a religious pilgrimage point, St. Anthony Caves. In general, Chernihiv is perfect for day trips from Kyiv.

Start with sightseeing on the central Krasna Square, one of the largest squares in Ukraine.

On the wall you can take an interesting picture of the church and guns. Both are "influence", although it's different.

We stopped in Chernihiv to see former estate of landlord Grigory Glibov. It is located behind the Chernihiv Technological University (Shevchenko str., 97). Throughout the city appeared tourist signs and informational boards in Ukrainian and English languages.

The estate is located in the park, the distinguishing feature is a tower like in the castle.

Getting there: By car or minibus from the Chernihivska metro station in Kyiv. Or by train, but the schedule is inconvenient, so better go by minibus.
