Collegium

Museum in Chernihiv

Once a major theology school set up on the orders of tsar Peter the Great with the money of hetman (Cossack chieftain) Ivan Mazepa in 1700 (when the two were still friends), today this church-like structure, built in 'Cossack baroque' style, houses an interesting collection of Ukrainian icons salvaged from abandoned churches in Chernihiv region in the Soviet times.
