Ivano-Frankivs'k. The city under the name of Stanislaviv was founded by Polish magnate A. Potocki more than 300 years ago as a fortress to protect the population from the attacks of Turkish-Tatar invaders. It is first mentioned in historical chronicles in 1662. In 1962 it was renamed in honour of great Ukrainian writer Ivan Franko whose monument was set up in the city. The City Hall, a witness of many historical events, is now an architectural monument. In its dungeons the opryshky peasant rebels were tortured. Such fate befell Vasyl Baiurak, the opryshky leader and follower of Oleksa Dovbush. In the early 19th c. the City Hall served for a prison and a storehouse of military equipment. It was destroyed many times but then rebuilt anew. After the latest restoration this architectural monument got its original appearance. Near the >>>>
