  1. Topic

T: Yes, you’re completely right. Today we start our talk about the town where we live. And our topic is «Chernihiv is my hometown».

 I hope you have learnt a lot of interesting facts about your native town at the History lessons. I think it will be great to speak about it in English.

Are you interested in the history of your hometown? Do you know its culture and traditions? Why are you proud of your town? Can you answer these questions in English? I am sure you'll be able to do it after you have read the English texts about Chernihiv sightseeing.


  1. Warm up

T: Read a poem about town:


‘My town’

I know Chernihiv and I love my town

And I want to help it be

As great Chernihiv to everyone

As it seems to be to me.

I praise Chernihiv and cheer my town

And I try to spread its fame

And I know what a splendid thing would be

If all would do the same.


6. Main part:

1.  T:  We often speak and hear about our  Motherland. What synonyms to the word  Motherland do you know?
Ps: -native land


As far as you have understood the word "Motherland" has two meanings. Work in pairs and decide what meaning are that:

Ps: 1. It is our country. It is Ukraine.

2. It is the place where you were born. It is your town, your house. Usually this place is the best one in the world. There is no place like home.


2.  T: And now answer my question: What does your Motherland begin with for you?

PI. As for me, my Motherland begins with my home, my parents.

P2. My Motherland begins with the dearest person in the world — my mother.

P3. I think to love Motherland means to love my town, my family, my peo­ple.

P4.1 want to add. Our Motherland be­gins with the knowing of its history and language.

P5. To love Motherland means to love the beauty of its nature.

P6. The beginning of my homeland is my native town Chernihiv.


  1. T: Work in 3 groups.

To begin with I want to offer you a very interesting task. Ralf Waldo Emerson once said that "All men are poets at heart". Today we'll try to be poets and we'll write small masterpieces.

This table will help you:

Line 1: name the object (Chernihiv)

Line 2: write 2 adjectives to describe (beautiful, ancient)

Line  3: where is it? (in my heart)

Line 4: repeat the name (Chernihiv)

Line 5: what’s it doing (it’s thriving)

Line 6: how is it doing it? -adverb- (silently)

Line 7: repeat where it is (in my heart)

Line 8: repeat the adjectives (beautiful, ancient)

Line 9: add 2 more adjectives (shining, bright)

Line 10: repeat the name (Chernihiv)


You are very talented and creative. I highly appreciate your pieces of poems. Thank you.



Lets have a rest:



Move your legs, move them up and down

Move your arms, move them up and down


Move them all around


Move them all around and around

then you FREEZE

Move your legs, move them up and down

Move your arms, move them up and down


Move them all around


Move them then you FREEZE

Wave your arms

Wave them super slow

Lift your legs

Lift them super slow




Go crazy going round and around

Then you FREEZE



T: And now I think, it’s quite time to read about some sights of our town.

St. Catherine's Church

Yeletsky Women's Monastery

St. Elijah Church

Chernihiv sightseeing


Spassky Cathedral

A must see attraction in Chernigiv is the Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral (Spassky Cathedral) in the old rampart of the town, built by the first Chernihiv prince Mstislav - the son of great Kiev prince Vladimir, Baptist of Russia. Spassky Cathedral is actually the oldest orthodox cathedral surviving on the territory of Kievan Rus. It was founded in 1024 and it is the oldest Orthodox church in Ukraine and in Russia, founded a few years even before the famous St. Sophia Cathedral and is under construction right now but still operates as a church. Today Spassky Cathedral is the only surviving monument (on the left bank of Ukraine) of architecture of the blossoming period of Kievan Rus and is a part of the National reserve Old Chernigov.


St. Catherine's Church

The baroque style St. Catherine's Church (Katerynynska Church) was built between the end of the 17th and beginning of the 18th century.

When we visited the church the interior was being renovated and church services were held outside in provisional tents. During the Soviet era the church was used as a museum.

The golden-domed St. Catherine's Church is situated on the southern entrance to Chernihiv, just at the edge of the rampart which overlooks the Desna river.


Yeletsky Women's Monastery

The Yeletsky Women's Monastery was founded in the 17th century. Its gounds also include the Dormition Cathedral which dates back to the 12th century. It was modeled after the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra.

The Yeletsky Women's Monastery also includes a Bell Tower from the 17th century.

The Yeletsky Women's Monastery is situated inbetween Chernihiv's city centre and the Boldyn Hill district.


St. Elijah Church and Anthony Caves

The St. Elijah Church (Illinska Church) dates back to the12th century and stands on top of the Anthony Caves.

The Anthony Caves (Antonievy Caves) belong to a sort of underground monastery which was build in the early 11th century by Anthony Pechersky who also founded the famous Kiev-Pechersk Lavra. Archeologists have found a lot of underground passages in Chernihiv St. Anthony’s caves form an underground monastery, founded in 1069. St. Anthony was also the founder of the Kievo-Pecherska Lavra. There is a legend that Chernigov caves were connected with Kiev caves with an underground passage.

The St. Elijah Church and Anthony Caves are located in the forest on Boldyn Hill, just in front of the Trinity-Elias Cloister complex.


Bell Tower of the Trinity-Elias Cloister

Like the Trinity Cathedral the Bell Tower belongs to the Trinity-Elias Cloister. The Bell Tower was built between 1774 and 1778.

The yellow white tower can be climbed for magnificent views of Chernihiv and the Trinity Cathedral.

The Bell Tower is loacted at the entrance to the grounds of the Trinity-Elias Cloister.


Trinity Cathedral

The Trinity Cathedral (Troitsky Cathedral) is a part of the Trinity-Elias Cloister (Troitsko-Illinsky Cloister).

The Ukrainian Baroque building was constructed in the second half of the 17th century.


Chernihiv Collegium

The Collegium was built in the early 18th century and is therefore one of the oldest secondary schools in the Ukraine.

The students were mostly sons of priests and Kozak officials who learned general education. During the rule of Catherine II of Russia, the school was turned into a theological seminary, which it remained until its closing in 1917.

Like the Cathedral of Saviour and Transfiguration and the Boris and Hleb Cathedral, the Chernihiv Collegium can be found in the Val part of Chernihiv.


Cathedral of Saviour and Transfiguration

The construction of the Cathedral of Saviour and Transfiguration (Spaso-Preobrazhensky Cathedral) was ordered in the 11th century by Prince Mstyslav, Chernihiv's golden-age ruler. He is buried beneath the church.

The Cathedral of Saviour and Transfiguration is located immediately next to the Boris and Hleb Cathedral in the Val part of Chernihiv.


Boris and Hleb Cathedral

The Boris and Hleb Cathedral (Borisohlebsky Cathedral) is an example of the famous Chernihiv architecture. It was built in the 12th century and belongs to the oldest cathedrals in Europe.

Several renovations took place after severe pillages in the 13th and 17th century and also after WWII devastations.

The silver-domed Boris and Hleb Cathedral is located in the Val which is Chernihiv's oldest part. It can be found just above the Desna river.
