“Vozdvyzhenskyi” Neibourhood

Про локацію

Locals call it “Vozdvizhenka”. It is situated in “Gonchari-Kozhumiaky” area. This cozy and hidden from city noise place has long been inhabited by people. During the times of Kyiv Rus, on the Old Kyiv Hill), a princely castle with fortifications was located, and Podil was the most active district. There was a wharf and a market, and in the area there were settlements of craftsmen – potters and dredgers, whose shops existed here until the end of the 19th century. In those days, Kyiv was glorious with the products of its masters – beautiful dishes, painted patterns, exquisite jewelry. In 1748 a wooden church was built and it was set to fire in 1811. A the result a stone temple of the Exaltation of the Cross of the Lord was laid on this very place, from which now the street and the neighbourhood “Vozdvyzhenskaya” takes its name. Here is the area, where the scenes of “Chasing two hares” comedy were developed.
