According to legend, in ancient times, instead of a village on this place was dense forest. It was used as a shelter and a place for ambushes opryshky. They were actively engaged in robbing tourists who were traveling with Solotvina in Khust. Famous the leader of the opryshky those places were a brave Hatchet. Once he really wanted to drink water. The day before he had dug it up with his own hands in the forest well. So he lost no time in riding his horse toward it. When the horse arrived at the well, it suddenly began to kick and suddenly dropped the hatchet directly to the deep well. The leader of opryshkov died by drowning in this well. The axeman’s brothers noted with regret that He had dug a grave for himself, not a well. The partisans made a grave out of the well, and later a village was founded on the site of this tragedy, which was named in honor of Toporik – Sokirnitsey.
