View of the Monastic island. Вид на Монастырский остров

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The "Monastic" island has received the name from the Byzantian monastery existing there in IХ a century. In its walls princess Olga waited a storm on a way to Tsargrad in 957 year; Kiev prince Vladimir Veliky on the way in Chersonese in 988 year here stopped. Само название "Монастырский" остров получил от существовавшего там византийского монастыря, основанного в IХ веке. В его стенах княгиня Ольга пережидала бурю по пути в Царьград в 957 году; здесь останавливался киевский князь Владимир Великий в походе на Корсунь (Херсонес) в 988 году.
