The complex of fortifications on the right bank of the Dnieper River. It includes several earthen fortifications, citadels, outbuildings and administrative buildings. The history of the fortress is rooted in the 5th century. Then on Starokievskaya hill there was a fortified ancient settlement. After the destructive campaign of Batu Khan to Russia in the 13th century, the buildings fell into decay. The Kiev fortress again regained its military significance during the Russian-Swedish war of 1700-1721.

Bit underwhelming fortress experience, hardly any signs. The two museum exhibits are hard to find but one might just be worth the visit. Nice view of the stadium.
A Very small museum, thr fortress is a hospital, so nothing much about it.
Very very interesting place. Both museums are rather unique, cover history of Kyiv from ancient times to modern history (2014 war with Russia). Lots of interesting artefact, and a lot of reading though you can hire a local guide.
