Duderhof height - a unique monument of nature, a group of hills of glacial origin, the highest place in the vicinity of St. Petersburg. The heights are formed by three mountains: Crow (147 m), Nut (176 m) and Kirchhoff (170 m). The first two vertices are on the same base. Near the Crows and Nut Mountains Dudergofskoe Lake is located. The soil and vegetation of the heights are diverse and unusual for the latitudes of the northwest. The Crow and Nut Mountains are located in the south-west of St. Petersburg - at the foot of the village is Mozhaisky, Kirchhoff mountain - in the Lomonosov district of the Leningrad region. The Duderhof hills are listed in the UNESCO World Heritage List. - Mount Kirchhoff is a small mountain 170 m high located in the Lomonosov district of the Leningrad region. It is a part of the nature monument of regional importance Dudergofsky heights. At the top of the site there was a church of the Holy Trinity (c 1832 stone, architect H. Meyer), which was destroyed during the Great Patriotic War. Around the church there was an ancient Finnish cemetery. Not far from the cemetery is located Ukko-kiwi - a glacial boulder, according to legend, split by a lightning bolt into parts. The name "Ukko-kiwi" means "thunder-stone" ("Ukko" is a god of thunder in Finno-Ugric mythology, "kiwi" is translated from Finnish as "stone"). On the Kirchhoff mountain near the Ukko-kiwi stone, the Finnish tribes celebrated the Juhannus feast, dedicated to the god of thunder and lightning. It is also known the local name of this stone - Petrovsky stone, associated with legends about the activities of Tsar Peter the Great .
