In the center of the village, behind the two-story school building, you can immediately see the 800-year-old remains of the fortress. In 2004 the ruins were almost for the first time in many decades ordered freed from impassable grape brushwoods’. Today, one of the oldest Ukrainian castles is preserved in the form of fragments of walls, which are located on a hill fifteen meters high above the river Burawoy.
