History of the Jews of Czortkow by Mordechai Silberg


נוף מגורנה ווגננקה צ'ורטקוב

The town lies on the right bank of the river Seret, in a deep valley surrounded by mountains some of them covered with forests, the others greening with herbs in summer and snowcapped in winter. The river flows from north to south, and falls into the Dniester. Two of the bends of the river cross the town at two different points and largely add to its charming beauty. From the top of the mountains roundabout, an exquisite scenery is visible which one can feast his eyes on for hours.
