The history of the urban-type village of Slavsko

People have settled on the territory of the present urban village of Slavsko since ancient times. This is confirmed by the findings of archaeologists – flint tools of the Neolithic era.

According to some researchers, the name of the village comes from the river Slavka. According to another version, the village got its name from the nickname “glorious” which the local residents called the soldiers of Prince Svyatoslav Volodymyrovych, who was killed over the Opir River between Skole and Grebenov in the course of fratricidal princely feuds in 1015. It was the prince’s soldiers who decided to stay in these picturesque places and are considered, according to legends and traditions, to be the founders of the village.

However, the first written mention of Slavsko dates back to a much later date, namely 1483.

The history of this village is extremely complex, full of struggles and bloody wars. Polish feudal lords, Hungarian and Tatar conquerors regularly brought woe to these lands during their stay as part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Local residents have been fighting for the right to live freely for centuries. Slavsko became one of the epicenters of the opryshk movement, which for more than three centuries were a real horror for local oppressors. Among the most famous rebels, we should mention the former shepherd Andrii Dziganovich, whose squad fought in these places for a whole decade from 1671 to 1681. On the mountain, which is now called Dovbushanka, in the 18th century, Oleksa Dovbush’s hoards hid.

After the first division of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1772, Slavsko, together with all of Galicia, became part of the Habsburg Empire (since 1804, the Austrian Empire). In 1820, Polish Count Potocki became the owner of Slavsko, who intensified the exploitation of local peasants. All this caused a social explosion in the form of an anti-feudal uprising in 1824-1826 in Skolivshchyna. After the revolution of 1848-1849, the lordship and many other feudal remnants were abolished, which led to the acceleration of the economic development of Slavsko. In 1887, a railway was laid through Slavsko, which became a real epochal change in the life of local residents and further accelerated the development of the village.

During the First World War, Slavsko found itself in the very epicenter of the fiercest hostilities, especially in 1915. During and for a long time after the end of the Second World War, soldiers of the Ukrainian insurgent army actively led the struggle for the independence of Ukraine in Slavsko.

Nowadays, Slavsko is known as a famous tourist center. The development of tourism in Slavsko began as far back as the 18th century. This was facilitated by the healing nature of the Carpathians.

In the 19th and the first half of the 20th centuries, thanks to the joint efforts of entrepreneurs Gredel and Shmidta, Slavsko was transformed into a real tourist Mecca of the Carpathians. Thanks to their efforts, the first holiday homes were built, where thousands of tourists from all over Europe came to enjoy the mountain views and clean air. In addition, in the 1920s and 1930s, Polish builders ordered the Gredels and Schmidts to build the first ski lifts and ski jumps on Ilza and Pogar mountains. The mechanisms were driven by horse traction. Later they were replaced by diesel engines. During Slavsko time as part of the USSR in the 1970s and 1980s, more than 10 lifts were built here and ski schools were founded.

After Ukraine gained independence in 1991, Slavsko developed primarily as a famous ski resort. More detailed information about the ski slopes of Slavsko can be found on the corresponding page.

Sights of history, culture and nature in Slavsko

Despite a long and interesting history, a large number of historical and cultural monuments cannot be seen in Slavsko. Many interesting objects were lost due to the stormy history of this region. However, something interesting and attractive for tourists has been preserved to this day.

Церква Успіння Пресвятої Богородиці

Church of the Assumption of the Holy Mother of God

This majestic brick structure was built by the local community in 1901. The consecration of the temple took place on July 10, 1902, with the participation of Metropolitan Andriy Sheptytsky himself.

The project of the temple was developed by the well-known highly educated (he studied in Switzerland) Ukrainian architect Vasyl Nagirnyi. He participated in the design of more than 200 churches in Galicia. Vasyl Nagirny’s style is characterized by Byzantine motifs and features of the sacred construction of Kyivan Rus. The Cathedral of the Assumption of the Holy Theotokos has one bath above the middle cross, which is placed on a light drum.

The interior of the Assumption Church was made under the influence of folk art. Since 1909, the interior painting of the temple was done by the artist Modest Sosenko. Their compositional techniques are similar to the paintings of temples of the XI-XII centuries. The temple managed to survive the First World War without damage, despite active hostilities in Slavsko. During the Second World War, in 1944, as a result of bombing by Soviet troops, the dome of the temple and the iconostasis were damaged. The dome part had to be completely redrawn, and the main drawing with the image of the Almighty in Glory, unfortunately, remained only in the photo. After the restoration in the 1960s and 1970s, the author’s compositional system of images of the temple was preserved.

Next to the modern Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Mount Golytsia, where the cemetery is now located, there used to be a wooden church of the 13th century. In 1900, it was dismantled. Local residents tell an interesting legend about this old wooden temple. On the site of the current brick church, a cross from an old wooden church fell twice before it was blown away by the wind. This became a sign for the parishioners that the new shrine should be built right here.

In the archives of the modern Dormition Church in Slavsko, it was possible to preserve ancient books, in particular, the Gospel of Peter the Great from 1632.

Next to the temple there is an old bell tower, which is also an architectural monument.

On the initiative of the rector of the Church of the Assumption, Father Andrii Petrishich, not far from the church there is a monument to the writer, public figure and priest Mykola Ustiyanovich, who lived in Slavsko.

On both sides of the church, near the bell tower, there is a monument to the famous Ukrainian public figure writer Mykola Ustiyanovich (1811-1885), who served as a priest in Slavsko from 1842 to 1870. The monument was opened on August 28, 2005 according to the project of sculptor Serhiy Oleshko.

Печера «Писана Криниця»

Cave “Pisana Krynytsia”

A geological monument of local importance in the form of a cave and water source called “Written Well” is located near Slavsko on the slope of Mount Velikiy Verkh in the middle of a picturesque beech forest. According to local legend, this cave was once chosen by the leader of the Opryshks, Oleksa Dovbush. He repeatedly found shelter in it together with his brothers. They were attracted by the presence of a water source in the cave, which did not freeze even in the worst frosts. According to the legend, once a young man decided to argue with him about which of them was stronger.

Oleksa Dovbush offered him to find out with an interesting test instead of a fight. Whoever of the opponents can sign with his finger on the stone is stronger. Having extraordinary strength, Oleksa easily managed to leave his autograph on the stone of the cave. Local residents believe that if you drink water from the cave spring at the right moment, you can get the same strength as Oleksa Dovbush had.
