Will create unusual international route.
In the city of Drohobych, Lviv region, plan to create another route for tourists. About it reports a press-service of Drohobych city Council.
“In Drohobych launched a new project that is to create yet another international tourist route “the Eye of Yuri Drohobych”, – stated in the message.
It is noted that the project will draw attention to the event, which will be noted in Drogobych next year – 550 years since the departure of Yuri Kotermak to study in Cracow University.
International tourist route “the Eye of Yuri Drohobych” will include a visit to the solzavod, where his father, Yuri Kotermak was the salt works, as well as the Church of St. George, in which the future scientist received his first education. In addition, tourists will pass through the Central part of Drohobych and climb the tower of the town Hall, on the observation deck which will be permanently installed in a telescope (or high-powered binoculars), – “Eye of Yuri Drohobych”.
During the tour along this route tourists can see the life and work of Yuri Drohobych and climbing the tower of the town Hall will be able to make a wish.
“The idea of guessing the desire on the city Hall tower is that, according to legend, Yuri Kotermak in 1469, before leaving to study at the University of Cracow, rose to the top floor of city hall and promised to do everything possible in order to achieve success and make Drohobych known around the world. Subsequently, Yuri Drohobych became a world famous scientist, astronomer, rector of Bologna University”, – noted in the city Council.
The project will be implemented on crowdfunding site TechStartUpSchool Lviv Polytechnic. Its estimated cost of about 107 thousand UAH (purchase and installation of the telescope).
