Univ Holy Dormition Lavra of the Studite Rite is the large monastic complex, which by its historical name and the number of monks and influence, is the largest center of the religious culture of the spirit. It is erected within the Orthodox and other Eastern Christian traditions. Univ Lavra represents about 25 Studite Brethren. It is situated in Peremyshliany district, Lviv region. This sprawling religious compound has everything i a wooden church, a massive monastic complex, fortress-like walls, and inside i an old bell-tower and church that date back to 1548 (the Lavra was established in around 1400). The old church has ancient frescoes as well as several religious jewels and paintings.During the rule of the Austrian Empire and under Soviet rule, the monastery was closed. Monastic life in the church revived again thanks to Andrew Sheptytsky. He conferred the status of the monastery church. At the Univ Monastery during its history was formed a library, shelter, worked icon painting workshop. After the Soviet period, the Museum of Sacred Art began to be formed, which now operates in the Univ Lavra.Nearby is an archaeological place – the settlement of White Croats that is called Volodymyriv grad (1030;1061; st). From the monastery it s possible to climb the Chernecha Mountain (low mountain range Hologor), where once was the settlement and now preserved so-called Volodymyr shafts. The surface of the Hologor is divided by the tributaries of the Western Bug and Dniester, that is, the main European watershed passes along it. Today, it is one of the most important pilgrimage centres in Ukraine. Set on a picturesque land, this place breathes of tranquillity and peace. It is beautiful and peaceful place to spend 2 weeks in the intercultural environment, to learn about preservation of wooden art pieces, to help the monastery museum.
