Tustan fortress
Tustan is a unique monument of history and architecture of IX - XIII centuries, that has no analogues in Europe. This is a place where history can turn back and become part of the Ukrainian culture of the Middle Ages. In a thousand years B.C. tribes of pagans lived on this territory. And on the stones of this rocks you may find about 270 petroglyphes. The most popular among them are the signs of sun - which glorified the pagans god of Sun. In the IX - XVI century there was a fortress made of wood. After the archaeological digs scientists made a graphic reconstruction of the 5-storied fortress. In 1241 it was ruined by Mongol and Tatar army. There is also a museum, where you can see the remains of the fortress and archaeological finds. The height of the rocks is about 75 m. Now it is a part of Ukrainian historical preserve.
Originality of Tustan lies not only in its natural features, but the rock itself is impressive. Tustan uniqueness lies in the possibility of accurate (90%) reproduction of wooden buildings that existed on the rocks. The fact is that the builders erecting an impenetrable wooden fortress on rocks, hollowed in stone grooves for fixing wooden structures. There is no tree anymore, but the traces have been preserved in a stone. Wall-city of Tustan creates a complex of rocks: Rock, Sharp Stone, Little rock, groove and rock adjacent to Voronyi chain.
