Description

The Volodymyrska hill and the monument to St. Volodymyr. The celebration of the 900th anniversary of the baptism of Rus (1888) must have been recorded. A lot of aristocratic ladies with umbrellas and other public, wearing their best clothes, can be seen in the photo. Below, along Oleksandrivsky Uzviz street, there is a line of the military in full uniform; all this, most probably, indicates that the Emperor’s procession is about to go this way.
