Babka hill fort is a Slavic settlement-sanctuary located on the eastern tip of a sand hill, not far from the village of the same name in the Vladimiretsky district of the Rivne region, Ukraine.

A circular platform with a diameter of 30 meters is surrounded by cutouts in the shape of an interrupted ditch and individual trough-shaped pits. Nearly in the center of the area, there is a post hole (diameter 0.5 meters and depth 0.7 meters) and a accumulation of charcoal with a diameter of 1 meter. In the southern part, a cremation in a pot was discovered. At the settlement, a knife, animal bones, fragments of plaster, and pottery from the 8th-10th centuries were found. Charcoal and burnt tree trunks lie atop the surrounding embankment. The shallow ditch is filled with interlayers of charcoal. Nearby, there is a synchronous settlement.
