Askold’s Grave

Address: Украина, Киев, пл. Андрея Первозванного

Askold’s Grave is a place in Kiev on the right bank of Dnieper where according to a legend Prince Askold is buried and nowadays is a part of a park complex laid out in 1934-1936 on where the ancient Hungarian urochishche ('plot of land') had been located. Since Princess’ Olga reign till the beginning of the XIXth century upon Askold’s grave stood a continuously renewed wooden Church of St. Nicholas the Wonderworker. In 1809-1810 according to a design of architect Melensky on this place was set a stone church-rotunda. Starting from 1786 around Askold’s grave existed a graveyard where many famous Kiev citizens laid their bones. An official decision to ruin the graveyard which hindered creation of park was made in 1935. By that time the number of tombs in the graveyard was about two thousand. During Kiev seizure on Askold’s Grave there was a German cemetery, which was eliminated in 1944 when the city was liberated. After 1945 Askold’s Grave became one of the places where laid soldiers and officers fallen in battles against German invaders in the process of city liberation. In 1957 their remains were carried to the Park of Undying Glory. In the park there’s also a wooden rood which reminds us of Ukrainian young patriots that in 1918 were killed in action against Bolshie near Kruty rail station and were buried here. The road descending from The Slava (Glory) Square to Dnieprovsky Uzviz (Dnieprovsky Descent) bears the name of Heroes of Kruty Alley.

This and many other places you can visit during our Kiev sightseeing excursion.
