Landscape garden Oleksandria
Landscape garden Oleksandria is located on the picturesque banks of the Ros River in Bila Tserkva - the biggest city of the Kyiv oblast. Bila Tserkva was founded as a fortress in 1032 by Kyivan Prince Yaroslav the Wise. Its first name was Yuryiv. There was a mountain in the heart of the town with a castle on it. There was a white church on this mountain as well. In the ІЗth с. the city practically perished after the terrible devastation by the Mongols. There was only the white church left in the burnt to ashes town. This building, made of white stone, served as a reference point in the wild and thick forests of the Ros river valley for a long time. Only in the mid-16th c. the city was rebuilt and got the name Bila Tserkva, which means "White Church". The Church itself has disappeared in the whirl of historic events, and now nobody could even tell how it was ruined. Only some remnants of it have been found on Zamkova Gora (mountain) during archeological excavations in the 20th century. Read more
