The history of Kyivan Rus – one of the most powerful states of Europe – is inextricably linked with the history of its capital – Kyiv. Early Slavic settlements arose on the territory of Kyiv for a long time before the official date of the city’s origin in science in the late 5th century AD. Our guide in Kyiv will tell you about Zarubintsy culture (II century BC – II century AD) and that there were 14 (!) Zarubintsy settlements on the territory of our city, one of which was on the Zamkova mountain. If you wish, you can make an ascent to this mountain, from which opens a picturesque view of Kyiv.
The second early Slavic culture – Kyivan (III – V century). Settlements of this culture existed not only on the Zamkova, but also on the Starokyivski mountains. The latter is equipped with an observation deck, which opens a view of the two craft districts of ancient Kyiv – the Gonchars (potters) and Kozhumyaky, in which once lived and worked representatives of these professions. Nowadays there are two elite microdistricts of modern Kyiv. Kyiv culture was synchronous in time to another high culture of that era – Chernyakhivska (II-V century). The ceramics of this high culture, which had direct contact with the Roman Empire and experienced its strong influence, was discovered in Kyiv on the Starokyivska and Zamkova mountains, at Obolon and at the Kurenivka district. Accompanied by our guide, you will go to the National Museum of Ukrainian History, where you can learn more about the subjects of these early Slavic cultures (ceramics, fibulas, ornaments, etc.). With the existence of these cultures, a significant influx of Roman coins II – IV century. During the archaeological study of our city they found more than 6 thousand copies, 4 thousand of which were found only in one treasure in 1875 in the area of the present Lvivska Square. Such amount of Roman coins has not been found in any other region of Ukraine. Some of these finds are presented in the exposition of the museum.
At the memorable sign with the initial lines of the “Tale of Bygone Years” our guide in Kiev will tell you with pleasure the chronicle story of the three brothers – Kyi, Shchek and Khoryv, who founded our city. Located on one of the benches on the mound, passing along the shaft of the “town of Kyi”, you can listen to the fascinating story of Princess Olha, who took revenge on the Drevlyans for the death of her husband Ihor. Here they will show you the remains of the rotunda, which for a long time were identified with the princess’s house.
At the monument to the son of Olha Svyatoslav you will be told about the heroic campaigns and the tragic death in battle of this prince. With the name of Svyatoslav’s son Volodymyr associated the transformation of Kyiv into the capital of the powerful state of the Christian world. The small town of Kyi with an area of only 2 hectares, with an extensive pagan necropolis around it, he turned into the “city of Volodymyr” with an area of 10 hectares. The main dominant of this “city” was the famous Church of the Tithes, which almost for 40 years (996-1037) remained the cathedral of the Russian metropolis. At the foundations of this structure, you can see by yourself how huge this structure was. The Tithe church, with palaces around it, constituted a single architectural ensemble. With our Kyiv guide you will see the foundations of two of them (Western and Southern). The Southern Palace, which was a rectangle 45 meters long (equal to half the length of the football field) and 11.5 meters wide was the official residence of the Kyiv princes until the Mongol invasion. In the palace prince and several hundred soldiers from his closest associates could feast at the same time. If you want and if it possible, you, too, can “feast” in one of the restaurants located above the foundations of the palace.
Inside the “City of Volodymyr” led three gates, one of which was called Gradsky, later Sophia (after the construction of St. Sophia of Kyiv), and after December 6, 1240 when the last defenders keep the defense of the city against the horde of Baty Baty – Batyev’s. Our creative guides will conduct a mini-quest with you, suggesting that you find the place where the Sofia Gate (Baty) was located.
Further you will get acquainted with the pearl of the architecture of Kyivan Rus – Sophia of Kyiv, listed in UNESCO World Heritage Site. Yaroslav the Wise in more large-scale continued the construction that unfolded in Kyiv under the rule of his father. “Yaroslav’s City” exceeded in seven times (70 hectares) the “City of Volodymyr” (10 hectares). Later, within the boundaries of the “city of Yaroslav” appeared the “city of Svyatopolk-Mykhailo” with its famous “patrimonial” Mikhailivsky Golden-domed monastery of Izyaslavych (the sons of the eldest son of Yaroslav the Wise – Izyaslav).
Near the Kyiv Golden Gate our guide in Kiev tells you about the fortifications of our city, who had no equal among other cities of Kyivan Rus. And near the Lyadsky Gate on Independence Square our guide will tell you about the last months of Kyiv defense under the leadership of Galician voivode Dmytro. With the capture of Kyiv by the Mongols in December 1240, the most brilliant period of our history – the epoch of Kyivan Rus was ended.
