Mount Piviha

Mount Pyvykha is a hill, an isolated elevation within the Globinsky and (partially) Kremenchuk districts of the Poltava region, a landscape reserve of local significance. Located on the left bank of the Dnieper, near the southern outskirts of Hradizk. The height of the hill is 168 m. The area of ​​the protected area is 165.2 ha.

The mountain has a long history. According to legend, there was once a settlement of Piva, which belonged to the Russian boyars Piva. In 1489, King Casimir IV of Poland donated lands and various lands located around Pyvykha Mountain to the Kyiv Desert-Mykolayiv Monastery, whose monks in the 16th century. founded here Pivgorod Nikolaev monastery.

The local fortress-monastery had the shape of an elongated quadrangle, which covered an area of ​​5 acres. High mounds at its four corners served as watchtowers. Wooden and stone buildings, cells for monks were erected here. The monastery on Pyvys became a religious and political center of the Ukrainian people in the liberation war for its statehood. The steep slopes of the mountain, cut by deep streams, forested with trees and impassable bushes, were a hiding place for Pavlyuk's insurgents, and later for the Khmelnytsky Cossacks. Later the monastery was destroyed.

After the construction of the Kremenchuk Reservoir Pyvykha in the late 1960s, it gradually collapsed. Every year the water absorbs about 7 meters of the mountain. Today, more than 600 meters of Pyvykha have been blurred. People find the remains of an ancient monastery, which are washed away by the Dnieper waves. Now they are trying to save the mountain in every possible way. Fortification works are carried out along the shore, large areas are occupied by anti-erosion plantations of robinia and Scots pine.

In 2008 Pyvykha represented Poltava region at the all-Ukrainian competition "Seven Natural Wonders of Ukraine". The aesthetic appeal of Mount Pyvykha is no less than the attractiveness of famous places on the Crimean coast. Unfortunately, the landscape of Hradizk village is dominated by anthropogenic factors.
