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.
