Volodymyrska Hill

Volodymyrska Hill is the name of the park occupying the territory of 10.6 hectares on the upper and middle terraces of the slopes above the Dnipro River.

It was laid in the middle of the 19th century. In ancient times this place was called Mikhailivska Hill because St. Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery stood on its top.

The composition centre of the park is the monument to Prince Volodymyr.

You walk along the upper terrace until you approach a cosy bower on Volo­dymyrska Hill, from which opens up a picturesque panorama of the Dnipro River and its vast left-bank housing areas.

Alexander Blok and Vladimir Maya­kov­sky, Nikolai Gogol and Alexey Tolstoy, Fedor Tiutchev and Ivan Nechuy-Levytsky left for us their rapturous recollections about this spot… And Mikhail Bulgakov, in his novel The White Guard, more than once returned to the image of the monument to Prince Volody­myr, standing a bit lower, on the middle terrace of the hill. For him, the image of St. Volodymyr holding a big cross in his right hand was not only the symbol of the city, but of the epoch too. While watching the monument in the twilight, it seemed to him that the prince was holding not the cross but a sword in his hand.
