Photographer's Note

What's really special in Lavra is that both tourists and pilgrims feel comfortable there. This is a monk going to service in the morning.

The arches just make the place look better form that point. And you still can see the Cathedral Of The Dormition in the background.

They founded the Cathedral in 1073. It was ready for cult service in 1089. Destroyed in 1941 (well, there was WW2 that time). Reconstructed in the end of the 90s in the 20th century.
