Kiev map

Kiev map underwent changes for centuries. It hardly possible to ascertain topography of old Kiev exactly. Most of conjectures are made on the ground of disembodied and contradicting facts. According to some information, in 11 century Kiev borders were outlined by high earth mounds, which stretched from Lvov square along Jaroslavov Val Street. Having reached Golden gate – main Kiev, mounds went down to Independence Square, and then run upwards to Mihaylovsky square. Probably, it was not absolutely so, as according to this variant, Podol was not included in city borders, but we know that it was actively occupied as Kiev district already in 10 century.
