It is a very popular place with both Ukrainians and tourists. Despite the hustle, there is calm serenity at the Monastery. The caves are interesting. But do take note, it is kind of narrow and people who are claustrophobic are advice to avoid. And do take note where is the entrance to the cave. I made a mistake walking from the exit and had to make a long way round to the entrance.
The architecture is amazing. If you walk around, you can still part of the monastery that is build like a fortress. It is a pity that some part of the monastery forbids photography. Some of the places inside a breathtaking.
