Where does the name of our district, "Svyatoshinsky" come?

The name "Svyatoshinsky" comes from the name of the person who made great feat of peacemaking and compassion.

Name of this man Svyatoslav, St Mykola Svyatosha. He was the son of Chernigiv duke Danilo Sviatoslavovych and the grandson of Svyatoslav Yroslavovich- duke of Kyiv and Chernigiv. He lived in the 12th century. When Svyatoslav was a child, all loved him and kindly called Svyatosha. When Svyatosha grew, he found desire for faith in God and desired to serve him. So as an adult in 1107 he came to Kiev-Pechersky monastery, where a monk Mikola met him. And because of his extraordinary devotion, his name Svyatosha coincided with monk-name. So he came ever in the history of his native land.

Monk Mykola Svyatosha was very obedient and hardworking man. For three years he worked in the kitchen, chopped wood over the Dnipro and wore them on the shoulders to the monastery. The next three years he was a guard at the gate of the monastery, then went to serve in the refectory. Wherever he worked - all done with great desire. And even if after the departure of drought became a whister in separate cells (to care for the salvation of his soul) not abandoned work: at his cell planted lots of vegetables and never sat idle. Mykola Svyatosha was black tailor (sewed clothing). When he had out free time – he prayed a lot. Mykola Svyatosha marked peacefulness. During the debates of dukes in 1142, was like a mediator and conciliator. He was disinterested. All he received from his father and brothers, he gave to the building of churches, rewarded poor people. For his money were bought the books for many churches. Mykola loved to read, had a good library, which became the basis for a large library of Kyiv-Pecherska Lavra. For the money of Svyatosha in 1108 was built the church of the Holy Trinity, and separately - Hospital of St. Mykola Church.

In Kyiv-Pechersky monastery he lived for 36 and, he got the glory of the great ascetic. Svyatosha died on October 14, 1143. At his funeral came almost the whole population population of Kyiv.

The relics of St. Mykola are buried in the neighbor (Antonijvsky) caves. Land near Kyiv, which belonged to Svyatosha, and that he gave during his lifetime, indicating the great spiritual identity of this person, his living example will shine to people in the next millenniums. That’s why the region near Kyiv called Kyiv-Svyatoshynsky.
