of Letychiv. The town itself stands on the bank of a huge lake .The remnants
of the castle and a monastery are in the centre of this small town. The
castle was built on the place of a wooden one in the 16th c. and a church
appeared at the same time.The church was on fire for many times and was
rebuild in 1724.The castle was not very strong. Only one of four towers and
walls are preserved until now. The monument near the tower is Ustym Karmaluk,
