Monastery Island

The Monastery Island is a place where everyone has a mysterious romantic feel.

The very first mention of it was found in the writings of St. Theodosius, and according to one of the legends received this place from the monastery that was located here in the IX century.

Among the historical figures who visited the island were Princess Olga and Prince Volodymyr, Prince Mstyslav, and others. The local places were seen by Batu Khan himself, and eventually, the prince Potemkin-Taurice was attracted to the plan to build a university on the island and, at the same time, a bridge. There were many plans, but they were not realized. For centuries the island stood desolated.

Only in the XIX century, it was subjected to the gardening school, as well as other parks and promenades of the city. But soon the land was transferred to the forestry in order to plant resinous trees here. A long line of owners, constant changes of the name, among which one of the famous – the island Bogomolivsky. In Soviet times, the territory was transformed into a park and yacht club. At the end of the 20th century an Orthodox church was built on the island.

On your way to the island, when walking on a pedestrian bridge, stop to hang a lock of happiness, and throw away the key into the water of the Dnieper – for luck!
