Volodymerska Hill


Volodymerska Hill

Volodymerska Hill is a park in Kiev with the territory over 10,6 hectare founded in the middle of 19th century. The park is located on the upper and middle part of Mykhailovska Mountain. The upper part of this mountain was occupied by the construction of Izyaslav city and St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery.

The development and planning of slopes began in the 1830s. In 1853, on the west side of the mountain a monument to Vladimir the Great was built, after which the hill took its name Vladimir. The park on this hill got the same name.

Around 1900th panorama "Golgotha" was built on a hill. It has not been preserved, as it was destroyed in 1920th. The compositional center of the park is a monument to Prince Vladimir, where all the alleys of a middle terrace are leading, as well as the stairs to the upper terrace and stairs from the Vladimir descent. In addition to the monument in the park, there are smaller sculptures, works of Kiev Master 1980-1990's. In the 1970-1980-ies on Vladimir Hill citywide flower shows were held.

In the north part of a park you can find the funicular, in the southern part the Ukrainian House.
