Rocky Halytsky St. Nicholas Friary is situated in natural caves of the lime cliffs of Galitsky ravine, on the right (and steep) hill of the Dniester canyon. Origination of the first Orthodox priory on the monastery place is dated back to XIII century. This area hasn't been studied by archaeologists and historians at all, and hieroglyphs on the cliff walls confirm the theory that the pagans were the first settlers here - long before the Orthodox monks. Over the past centuries many rooms have been manually carved, outside walls have been built, as well as stairways and terraces with passages and arches. At the height of 120 m above the Dniester you can observe the panoramic views of the canyon - these places are at great distance from civilization and developed tourist business.
