This is my second visit. I just wanted to add, that from kiev, near the metro station vokzalna, and the central train station kyiv pass, you pass the mcdonalds at your left, and if you walk for 200 meters or less, down the road, you find a bus station. Here every day there are many buses that go to pochaev monastery. The passengers are people living, in kremenets, rivne, pochaiv...I took the bus at 15.00 and I arrived in the monastery at 22.00. It costs 120grivna thats 12euro. At the monastery, everything was ok, I got a bed to sleep, and I ate in the restaurant. How beautiful is this place I wrote before

I visited Pochaev lavra in 24 july 2012. it is an unforgetable experience. The place there is blessed. You can venerate the place where Mother of God stood at her apparition, the holy icons and drink from the holy water coming from the rock where she appeared.
i went there through ternopil with train 143 21.00pm from kiev. the problem was that there were only deluxe tickets on train. after on train station on 6am we took a yellow bus #20 from the street opposite the train station for the central bus station of Ternopil and on 7am the mini bus from there to POCHAEV. It took 1h 50m to arrive. after that you walk for 7 or 10 minutes and you arrive.
i return to kiev through ternopil again with a bus ticket i bought when i was going to pochaev. the bus was completly full and for the train were no tickets.
I didnt try to go to pochaev through Kremenets or Radiviliv. Next time

The primary attraction in the city of Pochaev (alternatively spelled Pochayiv or Pochaiv) is Svyato Uspensky Pochaev Lavra, one of 3 Lavras (Extremely Prominent Monastaries) in Ukraine. Largely considered the second most important religious center in Ukraine it is at least 500 years old and has been at the center of the back and forth between the Greek Catholic and Russian Orthodox Churches. The monastery is very family friendly. Once a day there is a free meal for pilgrims, and the hotel on site is 25 hryvna (about 3 dollars) a night. If that is too much there is also free lodging (floor space) beneath the Cave Church of St Job. (A blanket is also free but you might want to bring your own). Space in the hotel is dormitory style (very much like a hostel) with separate dorms for men and women. There is a cafeteria on site and the doors close promptly at 10 pm to the hotel.
