Remarks: 

Ivano-Frankivsk is a historic city located in southwestern Ukraine (453 km from Kiev). It is the administrative center of the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast (province) and its largest city. Prior to 1962, the city was known as Stanislawów. There are two rivers in the city: Bistritsa Nadvirnianska and Bistritsa Solotvinska. While the old synagogue and old Jewish cemetery were destroyed, there still exist the Temple (now the functioning synagogue), two other synagogue buildings and the new Jewish cemetery.

The photographs made by Dr. Vladimir Levin  in April and August 2009 see at the Gallery section.
