Was this city actually founded in 1493, or is that when it was first mentioned? Greenshed 16:28, 13 August 2007 (UTC)
Vvolodymyr (talk) 03:16, 24 September 2008 (UTC) First mentioned. But this is used to count years for city celebrations. When it was mentioned it was still called Ploskyriv (ukr. Плоскирів) literally meaning shallowditch and/or from the name of the river on which's bank it was situated - river Ploska (ukr. Плоска) meaning shallow. It was a wooden town - then there was a great fire - and the people resettled on the other bank.
Anyways - I just saw the article. One of these days (LOL) I'm gonna have to update stuff and add some sources etc.
