  • Above Bjni rises a hill from the steep walls and the flat top that is known to have been fortified. There are several ruins dating back to before the thousand and tracts of walls leaning against the wall of the hill. Worth a look when you are in the area.

  • On the plateau of Princes Pahlavuni in X-XІVV. Founded the fortress, which for centuries defended the approach to Bzhni. Unfortunately, only ruins and traces of many buildings remained in the fortress, but what kind of a view from here opens! The chronicler called Bzhni "impregnable abode of the gods." And it is not accidental. The riddle was that 3 underground paths connected the fortress with neighboring villages through which the besieged were provided with all necessary and even milk. The underground road led to the stone Church of the Holy Virgin with thick walls and narrow windows-loopholes. Here the defenders of the fortress received spiritual support. The road to the fortress is ground, during the rains it blurs, so it is better to leave the car downstairs and a little climb on foot.
