A new Cultural Route of the Council of Europe will be established in Ukraine, running from Sophia of Kyiv to Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra

This was announced by the Acting Minister of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, Rostyslav Karandieiev, in an interview to Ukrinform.

“We have a historical and cultural axis, Sophia of Kyiv – Lavra, which runs along Hrushevskoho Street, continues on Mazepa Street, and reaches Lavrska Street. This route provides an opportunity to connect Ukraine’s history with its modern objects, such as the National Museum in the Second World War, which is essentially transforming into a museum depicting the struggle for Ukraine’s independence, a museum covering all military conflicts that took place on our territory as a result of the Ukrainian people’s uprising against oppressors,” said Rostyslav Karandieiev.

This route is being prepared to become one of the Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe. Currently, there is ongoing technological development of the route and the information base. It is not only a new format for presenting tourist information but also an effective tool for international promotion.

In general, the Council of Europe’s “Cultural Routes” Program has the potential to become an effective tool for supporting the economic and tourism growth of Ukrainian regions by strengthening local communities and building tourism networks with European partners.

It’s worth noting that in Europe, there is a well-known “Way of St. James”. This pilgrimage route leads to the tomb of the apostle James in the Spanish city of Santiago de Compostela, with the main part of the route passing through Northern Spain.
