Ivano-Frankivsk will be able to check the time on a sundial

The sundial, which is the decoration of many European capitals and cities of Ukraine (Vienna, Warsaw, Kyiv, Kherson, Zbarazh, Lviv, Chernivtsi, etc.), thanks to the collective work of scientists, workers, students of Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical University of Oil and Gas, Technical High School № 21, Professional Construction Lyceum and Centre for Educational Innovations funded by the Ivano-Frankivsk City Council will not only decorate Ivano-Frankivsk, but also allow everyone to check the time on it from sunrise to sunset, according to the Latin inscription on the clock: "A solis ortu usque ad occasum".
