Dolmens of the River Vulan

The Dolmens of the River Vulan, also known as the Oasis Dolmens, are a group of megalithic structures located in the Krasnodar Krai region of Southern Russia. Like the Dolmen of the River Nechepsuho, these dolmens are also estimated to date back to the Early Bronze Age, around 4,000 to 5,000 years ago.

The dolmens of the River Vulan are scattered across a large area, covering several kilometers along the river. They are typically composed of large, flat limestone slabs that were carefully arranged to create a rectangular chamber with a capstone roof.

Many of the dolmens are decorated with intricate carvings and engravings, which depict various symbols and images, including spirals, circles, and animals. These decorations are believed to have held significant cultural and religious meaning for the people who built them.

The Dolmens of the River Vulan are considered to be among the most important and well-preserved examples of megalithic architecture in the region. They provide valuable insights into the social, economic, and technological developments of the Bronze Age culture in the area.
