Shchekavytsia is one the Kyiv’s mountains above the historical Podil district. It was mentions as the mountain represented by Shchek - one of the three brothers, who were the founders of Kyiv. The historians also describe name origin from Slavic “shchek” – the brae or from “shchekot” – the nightingale. One of the hypotheses says that there was the Danparshtadt – the capital of the Gothic state (IV century). Nowadays the hill is almost completely built up. However, on the top of it there is parkland with a viewing platform.
"The Primary Chronicle" asserts that Oleg the Seer, who was the first Rurik prince in Kyiv, was buried on the Shchekavytsia in 912.
The height of the mountain is 172.2 meter above Dnipro. You can fully observe Kyiv from here. There is a mosque here and an old cemetery.
