About the place

The Castle on the slope of Uzdykhalnytsia Hill above Andriivskyi Descent, named after the hero of the Ivanhoe novel, Richard the Lionheart, was built in the early 20th century by order of Dmitrii Orlov. From the very start, many mystical stories surrounded the building; a fire broke out almost after the completion of the construction, the owner was killed a few years later, and new owners did not stay there for long. People who lived there were rumoured to have seen ghosts and strange things happening to them.

In the 1920s, the Castle of Richard the Lionheart was nationalised and until 1983 it was used as communal housing. After that, the building has been standing empty, and a hotel is reportedly to be opened there soon.
