13.The Ancient Settlement

The Settlement functionated as the outpost for protection of Galyts'ko-Volyns'ki lands from the East. In 1888, Y.Sitsyns'kyi carried out the excavations on the Settlement. The things from the Settlement are in the Krakiw museum. The Settlement is pear-shaped in its plan. On the narrow edge, at 105 m distance the Settlement is crossed by a swell. The total length of the Settlement from the Cape to the double swell is 410 m, its width in the widest place is 210 m. Behind the double swell, which separates the Settlement from the crest of the mountain, at 82 m distance there is one more swell, which cuts the mountain from northeast to southwest.

According to the Order of the Executive Committee of Khmel'nyts'ka Oblast' Council from 5.05.1974, No.143, a border of the reserved area was established in radius of 50 m there. The plantings also belong to the reserved area.
