Beautiful architecture. It is definitely worth coming and looking around the place. There are guided tours which allow to go inside the main University building.

To visit I think you have to join a group tour, given in Ukrainian/Russian. It's beautiful. Make sure you stay close to your group, as various doors are locked after you go through!

Beautiful building and interiors. The architecture is rich and diverse particularly interesting for the period and region. Having a guide who can give you a tour helps a lot to understand the details about the building. The interiors are a must-see for they are amazing.

must be visited the Church but overall the garden and University. A moment of meditation to think how human is small

Hi! Can someone tell me what the approximate opening hours of the university are in the mornings (for visitors) and what days of the week is it open? Also, can I find a university guide on the spot or do they operate fixed hours? I wrote the university folks as well, and I'm waiting to hear back from them. Thanks a lot!

Hello! They are opened for public visitors Mon-Fri - 9 a.m.-5p.m., weekend - 10 a.m.-6 p.m., but because it is summer it is better to double check directly with them. Hope this will help!

I read the comments and found that it is better to join tour. I would like to know where to join? Through local tour company or there is an official tour organized by the university? Thanks.
