The Battlefield of Berestechko
Have you ever been to a place where there was a legendary battle? Nothing brings history alive more vividly than visiting such sites as the Battlefield of Berestechko, where in 1651 the fabulous battle was fought between the Ukrainian Cossacks, aided by their Crimean Tatar allies, and a Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth army. Even children brought bullets to the soldiers of this battle. Here not only will you understand much better the physical and strategic challenges faced by the warriors, feel the spirit of heroism, but you will feel an emotional connection too. Today it`s a history and memorial reserve. However, nowadays the Battlefield of Berestechko is, perhaps, the only site in Europe which remained the same as it was three centuries ago.
