Shcherbytsky.

There are eight monuments of history and archeology of various times that were discovered and partially explored by archaeologists on the territory of the complex. Among them there is a complex of underground cave monasteries in Pekarnitska mountain, described by researchers in the nineteenth century. The gallery of caves began from the pier on the banks of the Dnieper and passed into the depth of the hill by 40 m. There is an evidence of the existence of a cave church here. Now, due to landslides and crashes, the location of the underground complex can not be established.
