The main streets - Sagaidachnogo Konstantinovskaya Naberezhno-Kreschatikskaya, Upper and Lower Shaft, the famous square - Kontraktovaya, Zhitnetorzhskaya. Postage. The name comes from the fact that the area lies "on the downward", ie in the valley lowlands. Makes the most ancient part of town. The first settlement, for example, Cyril's parking lot, back to the Stone Age. Hem has repeatedly suffered devastating raids of uninvited guests, extensive fires and floods. After a grand fire in 1811 in which once was elevated again. Consolidation and replanned quarters, instead of winding and narrow streets paved streets straight line. It was always a trade and crafts center. The river Pochajna served as one of the tracks on the route "from the Vikings to the Greeks", and its estuary, a tributary of the Dnieper somewhere between the current pedestrian bridge, and Postal Square, was a harbor-haven - "butt" for the ships from afar. Own line of defense building situated along the current streets of the Upper and Lower Shaft. In 30-ies of XX century Hem parallel is also called Petrovka, in honor of President VUTSIK in 1934-38 Grigori Petrovsky. It was in these years Podol well all over Kyiv, persistently destroyed monuments as not representing the state value. After all, in fact, knowingly sings that "Without Podil Kiev is not possible, as without the cross of St. Vladimir. Surviving fragments of Podil and still leads all lovers of antiquity in the divine ecstasy.

Degtyar (Digtyari) are located on Podol in the streets of Tar and final part of the street Kozhemyatskoy. The name derives from the profession of its settlers craftsmen - tar that produced resinous liquid by dry distillation of wood and peat.

Kozhemyaki  located Podol in the street and the street Kozhemyatskoy Vozdvizhenskaya. Here, from the time of Kievan Rus craftsmen lived Kozhumyaky. Their hands were strong. From here on out fist fight with a snake-eater legendary Cyril (or Nikita) Kozhemyaka, which forever turned away from the ground nose heathens "Russian".

Castle Hill (Kiselevskaya, Frolovskaya, Kievitsa, Horevitsa) is Podol between Starokievsky mountain. Schekavitsey, Gonchar and Kozhemyaka one hand and the actual Podil - on the other. Represents the final part of the high right bank of the Dnieper with steep slopes. According to archaeological data, was settled in the late 3rd millennium BC. Some scientists suggest that before Polyansky Prince cue built on Mount Starokievsky strengthening, initiating Kiev, the seat of his was on the Castle Hill. In 1X-X centuries there was a country princely palace. The ancient name of the mountain is unknown, and because it is sometimes imprecisely called Kievitsey. Even thinks that it was here Vyshgorod, Grand ducal residence in the fortress, defending Kiev against attacks from the north. Identified the mountain and Horevitsey, which settled one of the brothers, founders of the city. In the 70-80-ies of the XIV century, when the hem after the destruction of the Mongol-Tatars Upper City became the center of Kiev, on Castle Hill was built a wooden castle Lithuanian governor. In 1482 during the invasion of the Crimean Khan Meli Hirei castle was burned, but somewhere after fifty or sixty years, restored and rebuilt. In the castle there were 15 combat chetyrehyarusnyh towers, and its area exceeded twice the plateau itself (flat part), Castle Hill. This is explained simply. Lock bridge with fortification on the hill Vzdyhalnitse (now St. Andrew's Hill). And the two mountains, thus forming a single entity, known as one of the Castle Hill. Kyselivka hill became known as the middle of XVII century by the name of the Kiev governor Adam Kisel (1580-1653). In 1651 the rebels Ukrainian Cossacks mastered locking consolidation no worse than the Tatars and the excitement burned entrenched there Polish garrison, together with all facilities. Gore was empty. And not the first time she was again covered with orchards and pumpkin plantations. Since 1816 there has grown a cemetery for people Podil Goncharov and Kozhemyako. In 1854 he moved to Kyselivka Flor monastery, hence the name of another. The church was built, and built a wall around the cemetery. In Soviet times there was erected a small "secret-application" object, including monotonous muffled chatter "foes duck voices from behind a hill. However, his ducks were carried out in due time and at Castle Hill. Once situated at the foot of swamp reeds and having the name of black mud. The marsh is gradually drained, and in its place was built female Florovsky monastery. I must say, not to honor those who contribute the land for construction, but to the great honor of its residents and novices.

Mart (Podolskoye Targovishte, Torhovytsia, Zhitniy Torg) is located on Podol between Kontraktova Zhitniy area and an indoor market.

GLUBOCHITSA (ditch) located Podol in the streets of the Upper and Lower Shaft. He wears the name of the once great river, a tributary of the Pochajna. Initial river was a dense network of adjacent streams and ravines, but as the population of the area they covered, and the river as a result of petty and becomes unsuitable for navigation. At the end of XVIII century mainstream Glubochitsy Podol straightened up and was surrounded by trees to protect nearby homes from flooding. Hence the name of the street with opposite sides - top and bottom shaft. Since Glubochitsu still called and ditch, channel, or garbage, as the waste dumped here pottery, tar and kozhemyatskogo production processes did not attribute it or purity or flavors. In the middle of the XIX century the moat was rebuilt in the sewer. The river-stream is still alive today, and is fed by precipitation and water sources, the main of which is spring in Kmitovom jar.

What was this place, so dear and sacred to the ordinary people of Kiev? Tour - this is not just "float", buffalo, bison, a bull, and above all the force that drives, presses, produces life-giving matter remains in motion and animating, inspiring her. According to one hypothesis, Tour - he's Hair, or whiter, it is a force that "voleet" and tells him, willing and able, willing and embodies desirable, in solar fruitful, joyful and irresistible. She served as a symbolic image, in particular, the bull's head, horns, beard, identified with the magical potential male n ¬ nitaliyami, such as horns, testicles - the personification of the potential and effective faith-which may ¬ properties of, the activity of which - it is an allegorical bull's head, a result of a manifestation - a beard, "a synonym for" generosity, wealth and fertility. Is not this the chronicle and meaningful "naming" Volos (Veles) "cattle god"? Whatever it was, but the fact remains - in the treaties with the Greeks of ancient Kiev Velez correlated with gold, the priesthood power and wealth, while the other is constantly referred to, along with his god - the thunder Perun - with arms, the force of the state. In ancient Kiev idol Perun stood on the hill, and idol Veles - at hem; in the creation of Perun needed a strong and autocratic princely rule. Whitish same (he's Hair and Tour) is easy and desirable to live with every simple man and lived every home. Well, for the authoritarian regime was more important to have available power, albeit fleeting, inhospitable, a grave in the contracts with her obligations, but is capable of quickly hitting (as the capacitor current) and is very frightening "to continue *. And for the common man more important was the power of reliable, long-term and stable. That's why he was friends with their hair yielding trudolyubivtsam happiness, love and prosperity.

Not by accident and the location of temples of Veles (Tour) is close Poch River. Velez, closely associated with the existence of rights and seeks to help him, was supposed to be a protector of the creatures belonging to the people as consumers' as people say, to the pigs. As a ruler and guide of the same elements fire, water, air and land, and that selfish obosoblenets Dragon, Velez helped in the capture of a man (from the word "will") own the same supernatural powers.
