The regional landscape park “Bald Mountain” has been created with an area of 137.1 hectares since 1994. The bald mountain is divided into the following three parts: the Mermaid Yar (the mermaids live in the local lake according to the beliefs), the Witch’s Jar and the Dead Grove. The burials of the past centuries were found in the latter ones. Today there is a whole dungeon under the Bald Mountain. It should be noted, that there is a truly beautiful view of the left bank of Kyiv from the Bald Mountain.
