Porcelain legends Baranovki

The city of Baranivka, in the southwestern part of the Zhytomyr region, is well known to ordinary residents of the region for its porcelain and generous harvests of forest blueberries.

There are more than 1300 thermal springs, many historical sights (from Hagia Sophia, the symbol of the golden age of the Byzantine Empire, to the ruins of Troy), natural parks.
