Legend of the monument to St. Vladimir says that under the foundation of the monument hidden treasures of the church. Another myth is that the pedestal of the monument - a cover of a giant underground wells which can not be opened, because if you open the well, the city will flood. A statue of Vladimir made so that the face of the monument can not be seen without a special lens and then only from a very remote location on the opposite bank of the river. Perhaps the creator of the monument did not want anyone to ever see the face of the statue.
Vladimirskaya Gorka (Hill) Park
One of the most beautiful places in the city, a cozy park with old pavilions and original paths paved with yellow Kiev brick. The park was arranged on the slopes of Michael's hill in the late 20th cent. It owes its name to the monument to Prince Vladimir standing on the lower terrace of Vladimirska Hill. The park area 10 ha.
