A picturesque hill located near the Botanical Garden is called Busova Hirka or Busovytsia. The name dates back to ancient times. According to legend, it was here that the Goths crucified the leader of the Antes, Bus, and 70 elders of his tribe after a terrible battle. Nowadays, this place is an elite neighborhood, but in some places there are still old elegant houses reminiscent of the old days. Also, in one of the undeveloped parts of Busovytsia, you can find an abandoned cemetery. This area is little known among the townspeople, and outsiders rarely come here, so get ready for some small discoveries!
