Legend about the origin of the village name Sokyrnytsya

According to legend, in ancient times, instead of a village, this place was a dense forest. It was used by opryshky as a hiding place and a place for ambushes. They actively robbed travellers travelling from Solotvyno to Khust. The famous leader of the opryshky of those places was the brave Sokyrka. Once he was very thirsty for water. The day before, he had dug a well in the forest with his own hands. So, without wasting any time, he rode his horse to the well. As he approached the well, the horse suddenly began to kick and suddenly threw Sokyrko right into the deep well. The leader of the opryshky died by drowning in this well. Sokyrko’s comrades regretted that he had dug himself a grave, not a well. The Oprishky turned the well into a grave, and later a village was founded at the site of this tragedy, which was named Sokyrnytsya in honour of Sokyrko.

The temperature in Sokyrnytsya is now:

14.0o C   |   57.2o F

The main attractions of Sokyrnytsya

In the very centre of Sokyrnytsya, next to the stone Orthodox Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, which was built in 1993, tourists can admire the beauty of the Gothic Nicholas Church. Next to this church is a chapel, which was built in the XIX century from wood. Not far away is a two-tiered bell tower, which was built in the Boyko style back in 1770. The whole area is surrounded by the remains of a wooden fence. On the church you can see the carved numbers “1709”. However, experts believe that in 1709 the church was moved from the village of Shashvar in Vynohradiv district. The church itself was built a century earlier before it was moved. In the past, churches were often bought and moved, as in Transcarpathia, and throughout Ukraine. After being moved to Sokyrnytsya, the church changed significantly. It has become a true masterpiece that is rapidly ascending into the sky.

Unfortunately, the Sokyrnytsya Church is the only one of the four Maramorosh Gothic shrines that is not functioning. The icons of the local iconostasis of 1748 disappeared during the Soviet era. The interior paintings have not survived either. The last known priest of the church was Ivan Oros, who served his sentence in the camps of Siberia in 1948-1956.

Outside, the walls of the Sokyrnytsya church house a unique collection of wooden crosses.
