1-13, Volodymyrska street

About the place

One of the oldest in the capital, it begins from the top of the Old Kyiv Hill. The section of the Street from the Church of the Tithes to Sofiiski Gate appeared in the late 10th century. After the final demolition of the remains of the ancient defensive ramparts and the Old Kyiv Fortress in the 19th century, separate parts of Andriivska, Sofiiska and Zolota Streets were united and levelled. The new street was named Volodymyrska, in honour of the Baptist of Kyivan Rus St. Volodymyr. Nowadays, it is one of the most attractive tourist areas of Kyiv, because unique memorials of different historical times have been preserved there: St. Sophia Cathedral, remains of the Golden Gate, buildings of Kyiv University, Pedagogical Museum, Opera Theatre, Presidium of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, and dozens of other publicly important buildings.

The archaeological complex on the Old Kyiv Hill has no analogues in Europe.
