  • For decades Zmiyivschina lost monuments of spirituality, history, archeology, culture.

Zmiyivsky area occupies the territory in the center of the Kharkiv region and has a long, complicated and extremely interesting history. Here numerous monuments of the Stone and Bronze Age, Scythian, Sarmatian, Slavic, Cossack epochs and others are found. In addition, there are other cultural-historical and natural monuments that have attracted many researchers and tourists from the past. Not having its own museum, Zmiivshchyna for decades lost the sights of spirituality, history, archeology, culture. Many of them were taken outside the area, and so settled in other museums and private collections. And only since 1991, after the creation of the Zmeyva Museum of Local Lore, this process has slowed down somewhat.
