After covering a few kilometers, following guide signs, you will come to the village you need. Keep to the main street – it will bring you to the foot of the hill, where once stood the fortress Chuchyn destroyed by the Tatars. In 1943, in the course of the battle of Kyiv, it was planned to carry out here a deceitful maneuver for the Nazi army. More detailed information you will obtain at the Museum of Bukryn Bridgehead.
