Once and Forever

Today I’d like to tell you about the past and the present of the most ancient and prestigious place in Kyiv.

Let’s start with its foundation first, which goes back to 1015, when a brotherhood of Ukrainian nobility, cossacks and priests founded a school. The school differed from all other schools as it gave a very good education. Hetman Petro Sahaidachnyi likes the idea of a new school and supported it in all possible ways. Affer his death, according to his will, much of his wealth was left to school. To honour his memory, grateful teachers, parents and members of the brotherhood buried Petro Sahaidachnyi near the school.

In 1632 another great man, Metropolitan Petro Mohyla, united Kyiv Lavra School, founded by him, and the brotherhood school. Thus, Kyiv Collegium appeared, which soon became the first university in Eastern Europe.

As Petro Mohyla was a highly educated person himself, he created the University which provided its graduates with an excellent academic education. Thanks to it, many well-known Ukrainians became versatile and well-educated people. No wonder, the University soon became an Academy and got the name of Petro Mohyla. Thus people paid tribute to its founder.

Largely thanks to the first Ukrainian president Leonid Kravchuk, Kyiv Mohyla Academy was revived in 1991. In 2014 the Kyiv Mohyla National Academy became increasingly noticeable not only in our country but abroad. Situated in an old building, in a picturesque place of Podil, it reminds its visitors of the great Kyivites.

Across Cultures: Ukraine

Petro Mohyla - the Metropolitan of Kyiv since 1633 and the founder of the first University in eastern Europe.

Petro Sahaidachnyi - Ukrainian political and civic leader, Hetman of Ukrainian Zaporozhian Cossacks from 1616-1622, a brilliant military leader.
