Located in the vicinity of Alushta town, in Molorecheskoye village the St.Nicholas Church has become the first church-lighthouse in Ukraine. This unique Orthodox Christian Church has been consecrated in 2007 by Metropolitan of Kiev and all Ukraine Volodymyr.
Rising at the height of 65 meters, the church of the patron saint of sailors and travelers stands on the steep cliff and is prominently visible from the sea. Symbolizing the planet of Earth, the lighthouse in the shape of a globe replaces a traditional Orthodox Christian dome-cupola under the main cross of the temple. Referring to the Byzantine past of the Crimea, the beautiful design of this modern church incorporates the traditional Byzantine ornaments with the marine theme.
We are back home in Hungary from Ukraine. We would like to say thank you for everything. Generally, we were satisfied with everything. The hotel 'Dnister' was really fine in Lviv. Our guide, Igor, the restaurant and the minibus was also up to western standards.
In Kyiv, hotel 'Slavutych' was a bit uncomfortable, the rooms were very small, and the beds were too short for persons 180 cm or taller :)) so I would not really recommend it to visitors. But we of course went to work, not for a splendid seaside holiday.
I was extremely satisfied with the services and approach of Unipress Travel. I would warmly recommend your company to anybody travelling to Ukraine. Thanks for all once again.
