Ivan Olbracht Ethnographic Center

The Ivan Olbracht Ethnographic Center is a museum of Kolochav, founded in 1981. It is located in the central part of the village. Named after a famous Czech writer who lived here in the 1930s. His real name is Kamil Zeman.

It was in Transcarpathia that he was so absorbed by the beauty of the region and gained valuable experience, thanks to which he wrote several iconic books in which he skillfully described the beauty of the area and nature. With this, he was able to attract the attention of not only Ukrainians, but also the whole world to Kolochava and Subcarpathian Rus. The book “Mykola Shugai the Robber” became a real bestseller, which was classified as a classic of Czech literature.

Ivan Olbracht’s ethnographic center will be especially interesting for those who prefer reading and are interested in the culture of the Carpathian region. Conventionally, the exposition in the museum can be divided into two sections: dedicated directly to the Czech writer and an ethnographic section with samples of clothes and household items of that time.

There is also a monument to the writer in Kolochava, which you can see near the high school where the museum is located. If you are a fan of cultural recreation, then the Ivan Olbracht ethnographic center should become part of your Transcarpathian route.
