Мой Киев — История Киева


Kiev history

By the legend Kiev was founded by 3 brothers – Kiy, Scheck, Horif and their sister Lybid. The city was named after the eldest brother – Kiev. Historians claim that first people settled on the territory of modern Kiev by the V century. The place for the city was well selected – high bank vaults of the river Dnieper served as a good defense from incursion of nomad tribes. In 882 Oleg prince of Novgorod captured Kiev and made it the capital of Old Russian powerful state – Kievan Rus. Kievan Rus’ is considered a predecessor state of three modern East Slavic nations: Belarus, Russia and Ukraine.
