My speculation is that he most likely he found the name Trypillia more appealing (Trypillia is translated as the area of three fields, while Rzhyschiv can be translated as the “whinnying” area).
Currently, the archeological diggings are continuing. The best time to visit a city in spring or summer time, especially around Ivana Kupala (July 7), when the Rzhyschiv Vinok (Rzyschiv Wreath) archeological and ethnic festival is held.

- In a nutshell:good for a one-day trip en route to Kaniv or Pereyaslav-Khmelnitsky
