Ukraine to determine "Seven Wonders" in August

Best monuments and historical objects of Ukraine will be selected within the framework of the event "7 Wonders of Ukraine", which will be summed up on August 23 in Kyiv.

Every region is supposed to recommend three unique monuments of architecture and history. The Volyn region has already suggested the Lutsk Castle, Lesia Ukrayinka Museum and the complex of monuments in Volodymyr-Volynskyi. Kyiv suggested the Sofia Kyivska, Kyiv-Pecherska Laura and the House with Chimeras.

The Zaporizhzhia region suggested the national sanctuary "Khortytsia island”.

The organizing committee will decide upon 21 objects by July 7. The list of objects will be made public at the "Ethnic Summer" festival in the Cherkasy region.
