It's not easy to drive into Galicia and Lodomeria - travelers in the cars may spend even 12 hours waiting at a border crossing.

Some antennas in Vladimir.
Krzemieniec - the border town between Volhynia and Podolia - the picture shows the building of the famous high school - Liceum Krzemienieckie.
Who has build this fortress? - asked in 1621 Turkish sultan Osman II, that had come here to attack Kamieniec. "That's Allah's work" - his dignitaries replied. "So Allah is only able to capture it" - said the sultan. He became discouraged and abandoned his intentions.
The reason he didn't lay siege to the stronghold was the unique lie of the land, which strongly favored defenders - the river had formed a canyon that perfectly protected both the fortress and the town - the details on the chart here.
But in 1672 Allah probably helped the Turks - they conquered Kamieniec and even built a minaret on the cathedral chapel; as the wheel of fortune turns, the town was recaptured - in 1757, in lasting memory of the event, the minaret was topped by a statue of the Blessed Virgin.
Telecommunication infrastructure is rather poor here, but a number of the Uniate and Catholic monasteries and convents have wireless access to the Internet - the picture shows a WiFi antenna on the roof of Ursuline convent in Kamieniec Podolski.
Buczacz, town hall, around 1750, designed by B. Meretyn, with sculptures created by famous rococo sculptor Pinsel. Well, there is more contemporary decoration on the tower, too - antennas of cellular base station.
A fortified castle in Luck and the antennas of local radio station.
A fabulous view over Zaleszczyki and the River Dniester, from the hill crowned by the mast with telecommunication antennas.
General destruction of churches, temples etc, the sad memento of Soviet political experiment. The Roman Catholic church in Jazloviec and synagogue in Zaleszczyki.
However, even historical ruins may be useful for telecommunications - relay station on the remains of the castle in Jazloviec.
