This is a majestic symbol of the struggle of Ukrainians for their independence. September 2, 1916, was the bloodiest battle for the Legion of Ukrainian Sich Riflemen against the Imperial Russian army. To destroy the memory of this place, the Polish, Nazi and Soviet authorities forbade Ukrainians to visit the kurgan memorial on this mountain. This is a testament to those who gave their lives for Ukraine and the Ukrainian Spirit, and should be visited by all to truly understand Ukrainian national identity.
In this former town Dryshchiv, on the banks of Zolota Lypa river, you can visit the beautiful church of St. Nicholas (1777) and a harmonious Neo-Gothic church (1914).
