Khotyn is the oldest city in the Chernivtsi region, which recently celebrated its 1000th anniversary. Then, in the X - XI centuries Khotyn lands were part of Kievan Rus, and from the second half of the XII century - to the Halych (later - Halych - Volyn) principality. Most probably at that time, the first wooden fortifications on the high bank of the Dniester were erected, which laid the foundation for the future glory of Khotyn as a fortress city.
