St Vladimir the Great was a 10th century grand prince of Kiev, under whom Kievan Rus adopted Christianity in 988. Belgorod's monument to St Vladimir by sculptor Vyacheslav Klykov stands on the Kharkovskaya Hill overlooking the city. In total the monument is 22 metres tall, with the figure of St Vladimir standing on a pedestal with two sections. The upper section has three large reliefs of St Ioasaf of Belgorod, Emperor Nicholas II and St Seraphim of Sarov and the lower tier has smaller reliefs of 24 more saints. From here you can enjoy views of the whole city.
