Native archeologist in the end of 2008 year announced about the discovering of Ukrainian Stonehenge. Prehistoric stone sculptures were found near the village Snidavka in the Ivano-Frankovsk region. The archeologists knew about the rare sculptures in the mountains. However any kind of research here was forbidden during the Soviet time because a lot of military objects were located in this area. And when the ban had been canceled there was no money for research. The research was renewed only a few years ago.
According to a theory the stones were brought to this place by a Scandinavian glacier. Another hypothesis tells us that these stone are the remains of ancient mountains, destroyed by the same glacier. Today the modern forms of these stones have appeared as a result of eolation during the course of the last twenty thousand years or so.
