What do Vinnitsa dungeons hide?

A monk’s ghost was photographed here, artifacts left by the townspeople and conquerors for four centuries are still found. They also talk about dangerous sea graves and Nazi forgotten treasures and military secrets. They also suggest that the dungeons stretch for many kilometers out of town. What really is there, nobody knows for certain, because despite episodic attempts to investigate them, no one has yet created even a reliable scheme of their location.

Knights of the Dnieper rapids

The Dnieper rapids now rest under the deep waters of the main river of Ukraine.

We offer to go to places where the glorious Dnieper knights lived. Continue reading
