The narrow mountain valley in which Solochyn is spread is extremely rich in vegetation and life-giving mineral springs. The village is located at an altitude of more than 300 meters. In the Bukovyna tract near the village, there is a large number of boulders, which testifies to the volcanic past of the peak of Tesanika. Near the western part of Solochyn, you can admire the nature in the “Topolina” and “Tesanyk” nature reserves.

Researchers derive the name Solochyn from the terms “soloch”, which translates as “salt” and “solochak”, which means salt marsh soil. So the very name of the village indicates that the local land is saturated with healing springs, of which there are more than 15.

History of the village of Solochyn

Archaeological data indicate that the first settlements on the territory of Solochyn appeared as early as the 1st and 2nd centuries. to n. e. In historical written sources, the settlement was first mentioned in 1430. At that time, Solochyn was the property of the Druget dynasty, natives of Italy, who owned the Uzhgorod castle for several centuries.

The inhabitants of Solochyn took an active part in the national liberation uprising of the Kuruts in 1703-1711. After the devastation caused by the war, the life of the village froze for a long period of time.

A sign of the revival of active life in the village of Solochyn was the construction of a wooden church in the Mazanchynoy tract in 1791. Unfortunately, it has not survived to this day, as it was destroyed by fire in 1868. At the same time, a new church was built, which has survived to this day.

In 1857, the church turned into a center of education, as a church school was organized at it in Solochyn. In 1905, it was turned into a public school, which was located in the private house of Bochko, and then moved to the house of Mykhailo Turyanitsa. The modern school building was built in the Czechoslovak period of Transcarpathia history in 1935.

Mineral waters of Solochyn

Since ancient times, the village of Solochyn has been famous as a balneological resort, where you can improve your health with the help of healing mineral waters.

Near the foot of Mount Tesanyk, a source of sulfur-hydrogen water has long been used for healing. In the middle of the tract of Bilasovytsa there is a mineral spring with the original name – “Vovkiv kvas”. The fact is that during the times of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Czechoslovakia, an enterprising Jew named Vovk was involved in the production and sale of this water. Thanks to Vovka’s work, water was actively bottled and sold in Austria and Hungary. This name was fixed in memory of his active activity. In Vovka’s time, the source was called “Pannonia”. Nowadays, the source of “Vovkiv kvas” should be found 400 m from the buildings of the “Kvitka Polonyny” sanatorium. It is an inconspicuous structure that is half buried in the ground. To taste “Vovkiv kvas” you should go down to the semi-basement. But all tourists should know that you can get really drunk from this water. So if you see tourists coming out of the basement swaying, know that they are “soaked” by the local mineral water.
