Entrance costs 5 hryvnias (October 2021). The view from above is simply incredible! You can see almost the whole city. It is very windy upstairs, so I advise you to wrap up if you plan to stand for a long time.

Be sure to visit. For 5 hryvnia you can go up. The ascent is not difficult, only the first flight with high steps. The view of the cathedral, the city and the Desna is worth all the effort.

The entrance to the bell tower is paid - 5 UAH. The staircase is in terrible condition and needs renovation. The height is normal to view the panorama of the city
Valentin Burblis
The main architectural accent stone fence Trinity Monastery and the entrance to the monastery courtyard. Very beautiful. Beautiful views from the top open in good weather.

Interesting place with great views. The steps are steep and scary to walk on. The floor looks unreliable, as if it is about to collapse. Fans of extreme sports and beautiful landscapes will love this place :)
