St. Andrew's Hill is an elevation on the right bank of the Dnieper, a place where, according to legend, the Apostle Andrew the First-named foretold Kiev a great future as the cradle of Christianity in the Slavic lands. It is assumed that here was the oldest settlement, which is connected with the city of the Polansky prince Kiya, whose name, according to legend, is Kiev. In the XVIII century. on the slopes of the mountain was located Pharmacy Garden. In the years 1749-1754. Andreevskaya church was erected on the Andreevskaya hill under the project of FB Rastrelli.
