Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bakota (Ukrainian: ) was a historic town (currently a village) in the Halych-Volhynian Kingdom, modern-day Khmelnytskyi Oblast (province) in western Ukraine. The village lies within the Dniester River Valley and is located in the historical Podillia region. Bakota has an ancient Orthodox cave monastery, which includes ancient frescoes and paintings dating back to the 12th-14th centuries, as well as preserved remains of monks. Local legend has it that the Bakota Cave Monastery was founded by Saint Anthony of Kiev, who also founded the historic Kiev Pechersk Lavra in 1051, now in Kiev, Ukraine. A Paleolithic archaeological site is also located near the village. Bakota is currently part of the National Environmental Park "Podilski Tovtry."show more
