Ukrainian people really respect them history and old traditions! Here in Ukraine you can find thousands small history places and towns! Like Ostroh. This place is like sleeping town! Modern people live there but town are still invariable! And it always seems like you are in old town and every moment there you can meet a queen or king with his court circle! Or you can hear when Cossacks (kozaki) and hetman are going back from the war and sing old songs!
Ostroh also known as educational centre of Ukraine. Thare is a well known "Ostroh Academy National University" .
Ostroh Academy National University is the successor of Ostroh Slavic, Greek and Latin Academy, the first higher educational establishment of the Eastern Slavic nations. It was founded in 1576 by Prince Vasyl-Kostiantyn of Ostroh. His nice, Princess Halshka of Ostroh, was the beneficiary of the Academy and spent a great deal of money for its development. Basically, Ostroh academy was quite common as for the standards of European education of Middle Ages, but unusual for Ukrainian, as there was practiced teaching of so-called seven free sciences (grammar, rhetoric, dialectic, arithmetic, geometry, music and astronomy), and higher sciences: philosophy, theology and medicine. The students of the Academy learnt five languages: Slavic, Polish, Hebrew, Latin and Greek. The originality of this establishment was also in the fact that it was the first to unite two types of cultures, Byzantine and West European. The Renaissance of the Ukrainian Nation was connected with Ostroh Academy.
