Pidkamin Monastery
Visit to Pidkamin with the monastery and Devil's Rock included

Less famous than Pochaiv but still a nice stop on the road trip to Pochayiv and back is Pidkamin. This small town features a bizarre rock formation that gave the town it's name (kamin means rock and pid means under). The inselberg sticks out of the landscape and is sure worth a visit. The Greek-Catholic monastery of Pidkamin is currently being renovated and is slowly getting back to it's old glory. Most days you will be alone in this area. It is a great way to see some of Ukraine's beautiful countryside.

Drop off
We will safely bring you back to your accommodation in Lviv. If you wish to get dropped off somewhere else, we will try to make that possible too.

Tour information

What guests say about this tour

The customer support at Lviv Buddy was extremely promptly responsive on Whatsapp and made this outing happen for me at quite short notice. They were very helpful and agreed to add another stop for me too in addition to the advertised itinerary. My guide on the day and my driver were both excellent and knowledgeable and very friendly. I had a great time and learnt a lot about Lviv and Ukraine from them as we talked all the way to Pochayiv and back! Thank you Lviv Buddy for all the help and great arrangements! Highly recommended!

MKHH101 via Tripadvisor

My parents and I were in Lviv and we wanted to make a day trip to Tarkiv, Pochayiv monastery and Kremenets. I saw a couple of companies offer the tour, but because Peter offered a better price, we decided to visit these places with him. And we had lots of fun! The day after we joined a walking tour and because Peter had learned a day before that I was a mathematician, he made one extra stop so that I could see the famous Scottish cafe where mathematicians used to gather (before ww2). He is very attentive and eager to help. In this company the visitors are a priority, so I would recommend anyone visiting Lviv join one of his tours.
