Zamkova Hora is a historical site in the centre of the Kiev city. According to some historians, Zamkova Hora has a mystical prehistory, it is supposed to be one of the Lysa hora (“bald mountains”, that are without trees from several sides). The sites of witch gatherings are called Lysa hora.
Reclaiming the mystical essence of the hill, local satanist groups conduct their ceremonies there since late 1980s.
In the 18th century a Muslim cemetery was established on the hill. Nowadays, it is a small landscape park in Podil, still containing interesting grave monuments.
Zamkova Hora is also one of two hills that borders the Andriyivskyy Descent. There is a nice view of the Dnipro river from one side of the hill and of the new-build district with colourful roofs from another.
