The State historical and architectural reserve “Hotinska Fortress” is the miracle that is included in the list of “7 Wonders of Ukraine”. The fortress appeared on the bank of the Dnister in the X century. At those times it was the only defensive fort – an earthen rampart with wooden walls.
The first stone fortress was built in the XIII century: and for centuries it was reconstructed and expanded. This is the location where, in 1621 the famous Khotyn battle took place when the forces of Ukrainians and Poles were defeated by the Turkish army, which was almost three times larger in number.
On the territory of the fortress, you can have a tour and the guides will tell you a lot of interesting stories about the events that took place in these lands.
