Opened in 1853 on the middle terrace of the Vladimir Hill in honor of the Baptist of Russia, Grand Duke Vladimir Svyatoslavovich. The author of the project is the famous St. Petersburg sculptor V. Demut-Malinovsky. The project was realized by sculptor P. Klodt von Jurgensburg and architect K. Ton (pedestal). With a cross in his right hand and a Grand Prince's cap in his left, Vladimir is facing the Dnieper, as if paying tribute to a mighty river, in whose waters a great sacrament was performed. On the obverse of the pedestal is a bas-relief with a scene of Kiev's baptism, a little higher - the Order of St. Vladimir, at the very top - the coat of arms of Kiev. In the background are the summer premises of the Merchant Assembly. The monument has survived.
