Volodymyr’s Hill is one of the many forested parks along the Dnipro River in Kiev. In the center is a huge monument dedicated to St. Volodymyr (Vladimir the Great), a Grand Prince of Kiev who converted to Christianity in 988 and Christianized the Kievan Rus’. The monument was erected in 1853 and is the oldest sculptural monument in Kiev.
There are excellent views of the Dnipro River from the hill.
I wandered around the park a bit and made my way down the St. Andrew’s Steps, an ancient cobblestone path that leads down to the Podil district.
