Curious facts about Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra

Did you know that Lavra’s own laundry was liquidated as an unprofitable “indecent” and “antisanitary” organization in the early 1880’s. Its 30 laundresses that washed the linen of Lavra’s inn and hospital for piligrims, were also fired. After that there started the search of new laundry facilities in Kyiv.
