The Column is one of the oldest monuments in Kyiv and located at the foot of the Volodymyrsky Hill. Column of Magdeburg Law in Kyiv is also called the monument of the christening of Rus and the Bottom Monument to Volodymyr.

Over 1,000 years ago, according to legends, there was a stream where Prince Volodymyr christened his sons. Until the end of the 18th century, chapels, small churches and springs of Holy water were built in this place.

From the Column to the embankment leads an underground passage. The passage itself is decorated with drawings of Kyiv, and the embankment - with reliefs.

This monument is one of the most beautiful walking stairs of Kiev. It is necessary to walk. These stairs are called stairs lovers. Probably because it is perfect for kissing. I do not know. I do not remember.

К этому памятнику идет одна из самых красивых прогулочных лестниц Киева. По ней обязательно нужно прогуляться. Эту лестницу еще называют лестницей влюбленных. Вероятно, потому что она идеально подходит для поцелуев. Не знаю. Не помню уже.

Fixed it, and now it's very beautiful. Stairs go up to the Vladimir descent, quite steep.

Его починили, и теперь тут очень красиво. Ступеньки идут вверх до владимирского спуска, довольно крутые.
