Scattered over the mountain slope, the remains include 17 buildings, some cave paintings, and carvings that survived the destruction. On old photographs, displayed in a restored building, you can see how the place looked before it was ruined.

  • This is a one of the many (approximately 700) vypalenych klasteru (late 40 's). Today, outside of the rest of the vypalenych buildings is there even a museum. Krasne. Standing behind the trip.
