Там, де ходили князі...

Where knyazi (Princes) lived
Це Лиса Гора у Києві. Місті, де зародилася Київська Русь, де жили князі та княгині. Здається тут все дихає древнім і величним!

Bald Mountain (Lysa Hora) is in Kiev. City where born Kyivan Rus', where the princes and princess lived. It seems everything here breathes the ancient and magnificent!

The mount supposedly takes its name from the fact that its top was (some slopes of the hill are still) not covered by trees.
According to the legends , the Lysa Hora hill is the largest and most famous location of the mystical "bald mountain" - a traditional site of the witch gatherings. Particularly, it is asserted in the writings of Nikolai Gogol
