Few people know that the Hlybochytsia River flows beneath one of Kyiv's oldest districts. It was locked in a large brick dungeon back in the 19th century. Once upon a time, the Hlybochytsia divided Podil in two, and ships were repaired at its mouth along the famous trade route "From the Varangians to the Greeks." Now only brave diggers can walk along the banks of the Hlybochytsia and see the powerful brick vaults of its tunnels.
