Monument to Vladimir the Great

Address: Украина, Киев, ул. Владимирский спуск, 1

The Monument to Vladimir the Great, Rus baptizer, is one of Kiev’s symbols. The monument which stands on the lower bench of Volodymyrska Hill Park was unveiled in 1853. The bronze stature of Vladimir Svyatoslavovich in cloak holds a rood in right hand and a princely cap rises on a 16-meter plinth of cast iron plates simulating 8-faced chapel in Russian-Byzantine style. The high relief on the Monument’s plinth represents the scene of Kiev citizens receiving baptism. The pedestal decoration is enriched with images of stars and roods which are symbols of baptism by fire and sword, Michael the Archangel who is considered to be Kiev’s patron and is depicted on municipal arms, armory, torches as symbols of enlightenment and also symbols of fertility. V.I. Demut-Malinovsky and P.K. Klodt are the authors of the Monument and O.K. Ton its architect. The 4.5-meter sculpture of the Baptizer was casted in Petersburg in 1835 and erected on present place the same year.

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