Landmarks of UkraineUkrainian landmarks mainly reflect the particularities of several historical and cultural epochs.

There have lasted unique remains of bone dwellings, petroglyphs of Kam’yana Mogyla (“Stone Tomb”), ancient stone sculptures since primitive communal system; numerous barrows and ancient settlements from the epoch of Scythian and Sarmatians. There are ruins of Greek settlements and buildings of Khan Period on the Crimean peninsula. Old Russian culture is also reflected in landmarks of Kyiv and Chernigov. Khortytsia island is a cradle of Cossack’s heroics. Kievan fortress is the largest earthwork fortification in the world.
