Podil district


But without Podil Kiev is not possible, as Saint Vladimir without the cross.
Words from a song

If you’ve never visited Podol – you’ve never been to Kiev. Podol is the historic district located beneath the Kiev hills on the bank of the Dnepr River. Everything merged here: a wonderful atmosphere of Kiev, beauty of cathedrals and churches, majestic monuments, old buildings and marvelous narrow streets. During the times of the Kievskaya Rus, Podol was the trading-craft area of Kiev. The handicraft quarters, the main city port, harbour and custom house were situated in Podol, or as it was named The Lowest City.
