Historical and Cultural Sites

* The most recent monument of the cultural heritage was erected in the city of Kolomyia in Pokuttia. The museum "Pysanka" was built in 2000 and is the unique one in the world.
* Another interesting historical site is the cavern complex in the Dovbush Rock. The site is commemorated to the legendary freedom fighter Olexa Dovbush who in the legend fights against the Polish szlachta. The rock complex is located about 7 miles south west from Bolekhiv near village of Bubnysche.
* One more cultural site is located in the north of the Oblast in the small city of Rohatyn. Here is located an old church, the Church of the Holy Spirit, built back in 1598.


The Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast is administratively subdivided into 14 raions (districts) as well as 5 cities (municipalities) which are directly subordinate to the oblast government: Bolekhiv, Kalush,
Kolomyia, Yaremcha, and the administrative center of the oblast, Ivano-Frankivsk.
