Pavlo i suggest you edit your post if you do... if they come searching through the forum for the one you are using they will find it ;)... if you want me to edit my post after you edit yours just pm me :tongue2:

That town/city looks amazing :eek:kay:... whats the population?

I find it really funny how you were speaking of a place with 300,000 as a town... things are certainly different in Ukraine. Where I live there are a bit less than 200,000 and we are considered a city. Simply amazing... can't wait for my trip after university :D

It's Czortkow, founded by Jerzy Czortkowski and in 1522 was granted city rights by King Zygmunt II. Town was an estate of Potocki family and later Sadowski family.

Town has:

Potocki family castle
Paintings from Golski and Sadowski family collection
Carmelitan church from 1635
Palace of count Borkowska
Dominican church from 1731
Ruins of Golski family castle


Also the town was famous for a great defense against several armies in 1655 (deluge of Poland), after Kamieniec Podolski fell to the turks Czortkow defended Lwow against the Turks as well.

During Soviet occupation of eastern Poland NKVD killed 1000 Poles in Czorkow and in 1944 an uprising against Soviet occupation took place.

Та мені за що...

Коли повернусь на батьківщину треба буде поїздити по західній Україні. Крім як в Чернівцях, ніде там ще не був.

To me the beauty of the modern church dwindles in comparison to the nordic-like gothic architecture and Ukrainian Barocco architecture - the combination is WOW.

Big warm KUDOS to this beautiful gem of a small cosy town!!!

І це все одне містечко?! Я вражений! Пам"яток у маленькому містечку більше, ніж у більшості українських обласних центрів!!!

Ага. Готичний собор цей був би доречним і в центрі Києва! Вражає!
