In the times of Ancient Rus Сastle Hill was called Khorevitsa, but since the 15th century it becomes a Castle. The origin of this name is associated with the construction of the wooden castle, built after the occurrence of Kiev in 1363 in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania.

The atmosphere of the mountain covered with magic. Castle Hill is one of the famous places of power and so-called "bald hills" of the Ukrainian capital. And such hills as is well known, are very attractive to witches. Because of that, for all lovers of the unexplained and supernatural, Castle Hill is the embodiment of mysticism of Andrew's descent, as well as pagan Kiev, as it is an ancient pagan shrine.

There is a staircase, which was recently renovated, that lead from Andrew's descent to the Castle hill.

Castle Hill offers a great view of Podil, Andriyivsky descent and St. Andrew's Church, as well as the Vozdvizhenka. Tourists have to see it live or have to take a picture at least once, especially if you'd never been there.

This place of POWER. A long stay there will not work. To walk here is very desirable with a positive attitude and ease in the shower.

Very beautiful panorama of the city! Of unpleasant things - garbage (utilities not removed), an abandoned cemetery and a pagan temple. Deep, if you search, there is a "Bench catcher" - there is a very beautiful view

Дуже гарна панорама міста! З неприємних речей - сміття (комунальні служби не прибирають), занедбане кладовище та язичницьке капище. В глибині, якщо пошукати, є "Лавка над прірвою" - там дуже гарний вид

There is an ancient pagan temple. Every Sunday at 10 am out the rite to the Slavic deity Yarilo. Who wants to come, let us jump over the fire.

Там есть древнее языческое капище. Каждое воскресенье в 10 утра проводят обряд славянскому божеству Ярило. Кто хочет приходите, будем прыгать через костёр.

The mountain offers a panoramic view of the hem and also on the Vozdvizhenka Andreevskiy descent. Rumor has it that because of the close proximity to an old cemetery at night, there are going to Satanists.

С горы открывается вид на подол и воздвиженку также на андрееский спуск. Ходят слухи, что из за близкого соседства с старым кладбищем по ночам там собираются сатанисты.
