Mount Schekavitsa

Schekavitsa (Skavika, Olegovka, Olegova Gora) is a mountain in Kiev above Podil. Schekavitsa has a significant historical significance both for Kiev and for the whole of Ancient Russia.

Immediately behind Podil, enveloping it from the south side, there are three mountains stretched out in one line: the south, closest to the annalistic "Mountain" (later it was called Andreevskaya or Starokievskaya) - Castle Hill (Kiselevka, Frolovskaya Gora); further, to the northwest - Schekavitsa, and beyond it, the most distant from the Dnieper - Yurkovitsa (Jordanian heights).
The plucker is not in doubt that it was called that way already in the Monomakh era, it was called so in the 18th century, and it is also called this time.
The origin of the toponym Shchekavits is associated with the name of one of the founders of Kiev, Shchek.
Near the foot of the mountain there are Slavic burials of the pre-Christian period of the VIII-IX centuries. On the mountain itself, according to legend, Prophetic Oleg was buried.
