Chernihiv is the administrative centre of the most northern region of Ukraine. This small charming city has a lot to offer its visitors. The old history of Chernihiv begins in the 7th century, when a small settlement appeared on the banks of the Stryzhen river, not far from the Desna river. Its convenient location quickly turned it into a successful, rich and prosperous city, the largest centre of Kievan Rus.
The ambience of antiquity still prevails in the region as well as the spirit of the mighty Kievan Rus and the ancient principality of Chernihiv. The legends about the brave heroic deeds of the glorious Cossacks, the Cossack Hetmanate and St. Anthony’s spiritual treasury are drifting over the magnificent Desna river.
