THE KRISTEROV HILL
The park was founded in 1850 by Wilhelm Krister. The Kristerov Hill
is a part of the “Parkove city” residential park. Its area is 4.3 hectares. Swans, wild ducks and 4 species of animals entered in the Red List live on its territory.
Wilhelm Christer, the founder of the Hill studied the weaving industry in Germany and arrived in Kyiv at the Prince Radziwill’s invitation.
Already in 1850 he bought a big piece of land in 54 hectares and started the greening of the city.
He ordered and grew good seedlings, exotic one as well, and also he had created reservoirs for fish breeding. Krister also had the biggest apiary in Kyiv.
- There’s a 400-year-old oak in memory of Krister. You need to have a walk in the legendary park to see it. You’ll definitely take a unique photo!
