скелі-довбушаThe Rocks of Dovbush is a group of natural and man-made structures carved from rock in Ivano-Frankivsk Region in western Ukraine. Geologists have determined that this rock mass formed more than 70 million years ago and was situated on the bottom of a long dried-up sea. In 1981, the rocks were proclaimed as a reserve territory. Dovbush rocks have a rich and interesting history. The name of the formations comes from a leader of the opryshky movement, Oleksa Dovbush. Oleksa Dovbush is compared with a famous English folklore character – Robin Hood. The rocks are a part of the Polyanytskiy Regional Landscape Park.
