Holy Dormition Pochayiv Lavra is a monastery in Pochayiv, Ternopil region, Ukraine. For centuries, it has been a famous center of various Orthodox denominations in Western Ukraine. This ancient monastery is under special protection of the Theotokos. The Most Pure One appeared here to the monks in a pillar of fire and left Her Footprint in the rock upon which She stood. The Pochayiv wonder-working Icon of the Mother of God made this land world-famous.
Close to Pochaiv is Saint Anna’s Sacred Spring, a small site containing a beautiful garden, a charming cathedral and its famous water. People bath in the spring the whole year, so don’t forget your towels and other bathing things.
