Zhovkva was a favorite private town and residence of famous polish king Jan III Sobesky – winner of Turkish troops under Wiena in 1683. Some historians reckon Zhovkva was a birthplace of the most famous Ukrainian cossack hetman Bogdan Khmel’nyts’kyj. Zhovkva was built according to a principle of an ideal town of Renaissance period, where perfect architecture, organization of social life and reliable defensive fortifications were harmonically combined. When you come to the central town square, you’ll have a feeling that time stopped here in the end of 16 – beginning 17 centuries because of the absence of considerable architectural changes of medieval houses that survived till today.

Moreover, grandeur of its architecture is naturally inserted in surrounding landscape of unbelievable beauty, because Zhovkva is located near foothills of covered by forests Roztochans’ky hills. Not only medieval quarters and houses has been saved in the town but also Zhovkva castle (1594-1606), medieval casemates, “falling” bell/town tower, church of St. Laurence (“Little Vavel’”), Dominican church and monastery behind fortified walls, the biggest in Europe in 17 century Renaissance synagogue, wooden church of The Christmas, the church and convent of Christmas of the Basilians have survived through ages.

Next place of visit is medieval Krehiv monastery. It is a great fortified complex with high walls, towers and deep ditch for defense. The nature around is so beautiful and the air so clean, that no one stays indifferent.

The first stop will be a rock monastery witch was build in the 13-14 century. This area has been inhabited since ancient times. This rocky area was used for ancient rituals and for Christians. This monastery is situated on a hill and tucked away in the woods from the watchful eye of the potential enemies. Apparently this site also served as a powerful fortress.

Next we are going to National Natural Park Skole Beskids. We will visit the famous waterfall on the river Kamenka (7 m height) and walk to the Dead Lake, which is located in a very picturesque place a bit higher from the waterfall location.

Initially, these mountains were used as a pagan temple. Later there was the Old barrier in that location where the route for exporting salt went through. The customs that was there gave the name to the castle which means "Stand here" - Stop and pay taxes. Unfortunately, since the castle was wooden, it didn’t preserve to our times. However, thanks to the available historical documents that reveal the appearance of this fortress, it hopefully will be renovated in the near future.

While walking along the rocks you will see how the once mighty and impregnable fortress Tustan reproduces the medieval atmosphere of the period of Kievan Rus' and Galicia-Volyn principality. You'll also admire the Carpathian landscapes and a unique rock complex, which is about 55 million years old.
