Modern replica of the Crown of Rus-Ukraina

The Crown of Rus, also known as the Crown of Kingdom of Galicia–Volhynia, is the crown with which Daniel of Galicia was crowned in 1253 by a papal archbishop in Drohiczyn.

The crown is believed to have been lost. However there are many speculations on where it might be located.

After Ukrainian independence in 1991, work began on a replica, based on the drawings and historical data by the jewelers from Kiev and Western Ukraine. The crown was finished in 2000s and now part of a permanent exhibit of the Zolochiv Castle in Western Ukraine.
