According to legends, Panyanskyi Boulevard got its name from an unnamed beautiful lady who appeared in dreams of the regiment captain after the Battle of Poltava. The city-fortress suffered from the deadly plague. The lady told the captain the way to get rid of the plague: it was necessary to dig a deep well with healing water on this hill. They say that citizens of Poltava used the well dig by the regiment captain up to the first half of ХІХ century. Since that time the place is called as Panyanskyi Boulevard in honor of the lady-savior.
