A great place for believers and those who want okunutsya in the history of the baptism of Rus. Nahoditsya in a small Park on the hillside. Paths in the Park on the slopes is not easy to walk on.

Отличное место для верующих и тех кто хочет окунутмя в историю крещения Руси. Находитьмя в небольшом парке на склоне горы. Дорожки в парке на склонах не удобные для ходьбы.

Very calming and peaceful place. Amazing panoramic views of the Dnieper and the Left Bank of Kiev is revealed to us in this place. Here you can admire the scenery, read your favorite book and of course to the grandeur of the ancient monument of Russia, the legends. Then you can arrange a leisurely stroll along the shady lanes leading down to the Dnieper.

Очень умиротворяющее и спокойное место. Изумительный панорамный вид на Днепр и Левый берег Киева открывается нам с этого места. Здесь можно полюбоваться пейзажем, почитать любимую книгу и конечно же оценить величие древнейшего памятника Руси, окутанного легендами. После можно устроить неспешную прогулку по тенистым дорожкам, ведущим вниз к Днепру.
