Biblical Mountains and sacred mountains of Ukraine

This afternoon the Gabfest Club members (Dnipro Window on America center, Ukraine) were observing the International Mountains Day. The group was offered a slide show about mountains mentioned in the Bible. The club members learned a lot of new biblical terms and refreshed the knowledge of popular biblical stories: the Noah’s Ark and the flood, the Babel tower construction, etc. We mentioned such famous mountains as Ararat, the Sinai, the Calvary, the Temple and the Olive Mountains.
The spoken part of the session was dedicated to the sacred mountains of Ukraine. Our foreign friends
Mr. Jason and Mr. Stephen (USA) and Mr. Michelle (France) learned a lot about hills of Kyiv, Shevchenko memorial, Goverla mountain , popular cliff monasteries and castles, etc. They had a chance to recommend Ukrainian attractions connected with mountains and cliffs.
Number of participants – 31 persons.
