You can get to this village by the road that runs along the villages of Turitsa and Turichki. Driving along this road and admiring the scenery on the left in winter, you can see the number of hundred imprinted trees. The fact is that back in 1970, local Communists decided to celebrate the centenary of their birth in an original way Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. Efforts foresters’ in the beech forest, a fir tree was planted at the office of the number one hundred. After you pass the Turichka, a relatively good road with a more or less tolerable road surface breaks off and begins a five-kilometer napivextrimal path to the remote village of Likitsary. The village is located near the Runa valley in one of the most picturesque corners of the Carpathians. According to the last census, the village had just over fifty inhabitants, and now there are only a few families left. The village school has been closed for a long time, and there are no retail outlets or shops on the territory of Likitsar. However, a small one has been preserved a masterpiece of wooden sacred architecture– church Saint basil, which was built in the XVII century, and later significantly rebuilt in 1748 and in 1932, when the roof of the Church was covered with tin. Next to the temple is a frame belfry on a high Foundation.

The village of Likitsary has been known since the XV century. And it is under this name that it is first mentioned in historical sources. Austro-Hungarian times the village was called differently – Kurulur. According to legend, this name is due to the fact that Likitsary was one of the largest centers the smokers ‘ revolt.

In Soviet times, Likitsary was a more populated village . It had more than 300 inhabitants. However, the difficult road and lack of work led to an outflow of residents to Uzhgorod та Perechin.

Strange, a bit like Romanian, the name of this locality is explained by an old legend. According to it, in ancient times people rebelled against the king. After a long struggle with the king-despot, he was killed on the site, which was located on the slopes of the neighboring mountain Mlaki. The dead tyrant himself was huge. That is why, in memory of the victory over the “great king” and went the name Likitsary. According to another version, the name means a place of trade in Romanian. In the early 2000s, many houses in the village were bought by Kievans and other nonresident residents. Then everyone expected that a large ski base would be built near the village. However, the project was never implemented. The purchased houses began to be used by the new owners as cottages. One of the wealthy owners of such houses from Kiev even repaired the Church in the village at his own expense returning it instead of tin authentic wooden roof covering.
