Key landmarks

1

Bakota

The first metion about this town is found in chronicles of year 1240. Cave mens monastery was mentioned for the first time in "Kyiv Book" of 1362, as "existing from the ancient times". The foundator of the monastery was the reverend old man Antoniy (foundator of Kyiv Cave mens monastery). By the Hypatian Codex, 1255 the town was conquered by tatars. Monks and civilians have hidden in the labirynths of the caves of the monastery. The invaders offered to surrender and to give up their faith, but failed in their negotiations. Tatars have blocked the exit from the caves with large stones, burrying people to live in the caves in that way. 1258 tatars destroyed the castle in Bakota. The name "Bakota" marks today the bank of Dniester river near the remnants of the monastery.

Cone Hills

"The Cone Hills" is a natural landmark in Nagoryany village, Kelmetsi district. It is actually a chain of cone-looking rocks 15-20 m. high, which raise over the high right bank of Dniester river. This wonder was created millions of years ago, in the period, when this territory was covered with waters of the warm pre-historic "Sarmathian sea". These hills are the remnants of an ancient Barrier Reef, which was at the sea's bottom.
