Remarks: 

Yablonov (Yabluniv, Jabłonów)  is a little town on Luchka river (a tributary of the Prut), 15 km from Kolomea. The Jewish cemetery in  Yablonov is one the most interesting cemeteries in the region. The tombstones of the 18th century in the Baroque style are amazing examples of the local Jewish folk art. Although the style changed in the 19th and 20th centuries, the images made by the local Jewish artists remained to be very expressive.
