According to the legend, at the end of the 5th century AD brothers Kyi, Cheek and Horev and their sister Lybid passed by the slopes of the Dnieper River and decided to settle on this land. They set up a city on the steep right bank of the Dnieper river and named it in honour of the older brother, Kiev. Since 9th to the beginning of 13th centuries, Kiev became a political and cultural centre of the eastern Slavs, the capital of Kievan Rus – ancient powerful Slavic feudal state.
