St. Vladimir Hill
The panorama from St. Vladimir Hill is a favourite place among tourists. From here you can see Trukhaniv Island, which connects the historical district of Podol and the Left Bank neighbourhoods of Kiev. The hill is a park with upper and lower terraces, established in the middle of the 19th century. Between the two viewing levels, there’s a monument of Vladimir the Great (ruler of the Kievan Rus in the 10th and 11th centuries), who is one of the symbols of the capital.
