|The name for this place is a Witches Sabbath or
According to some ancient books this hill was a meeting place
for a witches and it is written in same books that all witches
live in Kiev.
A few centuries ago, a belt of ramparts was created around this
hill and since then place was closed for witches or any other
visitors and was used for storing gun powder. Later it was
included in Kiev's fortified area as storehouse for arms.
Now, this place is completely abandoned and everyone can look
what was behind of ramparts.
Bored guards occupied themselves with scratching on bricks.
Before revolution it was an execution place. Russian prime
minister, the hard liner Petr Stolypin sent many to the gallows
here. We even got this saying- to put a stolypins necktie on
In 1911 Stolypin was killed in Kiev's theater when young man
named Bagrov shot him in during intermission. In circles of
anarchists Bagrov was known as Bourgeois. It is because his dad
was rich property-owner. No one knows, what was the motivations
of this murder. Bagrov himself had no time to explain, he was
brought to this yard and ended with stolypins necktie on him.
