Lysa Gora (Bald mountain) was a place of pagan worship. Under Peter the Great, fortification and an underground city were built here.
How to climb Lysa Gora in Kiev
For the first time, Lysa Gora (there are almost no trees growing here) was discovered in 1240 by pagans to perform the rites of nature-worship. Then, at the beginning of the 18th century, a defense fort with underground tunnels 500 meters depth, was built here, and all the builders were buried alive at the end of the work. And in 1906, the Bald Mountain turned into a place of execution of people unwanted by the state regime.

Evil fame firmly entrenched this place and made it popular among satanists, occultists, and also folk healers who are convinced that the strong energy of Bald Mountain can be used to heal the soul and body.

How to do?

1. From the metro station Vydubichi, pass to the south-west (in the direction of Koncha-Zaspa) a few hundred meters. The bald mountain is quite visible because of the treeless edge and the towering cross on it.
2. Go up the path. Look around - the Left Bank of Kiev is plainly visible. Then go deep into the grove where you can find the pagan symbols and the entrance to the underground city.
