Church of St Basil in the village of Sil

The appearance of the present church of St Basil the Great in the village of Sil (GPS: 48.95308855, 22.524218273591) is very similar to the story of the wooden church from the village of Kostryno. Only a few kilometres separate Kostryno from the village of Sil, Uzhhorod district, Transcarpathian region, the first mention of which is found in documents from the 16th century. Researchers have two versions of this event. According to one, in 1707 a Boykivska wooden church was moved to the village of Sil from the Carpathian village of Syanky. According to the second version, the church was built in Syanky in 1703 and moved to the village of Sil in 1777. It has been preserved here since the 18th century.

Detailed description of the church of St. Basil in Sil

Researchers believe that the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary was the first to be built in the village of Sil. This wooden shrine was built back in 1479. Unfortunately, this church burned down and has not survived to this day. Apparently, the location of this church in the village of Sil is called Zgaryshche by the old-timers.

The Vasylivska wooden church acquires other forms, uncharacteristic of the Boykivskyi type. In 1834, it was seriously rebuilt. As a result of this reconstruction, the second tier of the altar and nave tent was covered with a continuous gable roof, and a baroque bell tower was built over the Babynets, the forms of which were completely borrowed from stone architecture.

The interior of the church retains the principle of three spaces. As a result of this mechanical reconstruction, this monument lost the proportions of the Boykivskyi temple, developed over the centuries, and its forms became heavy. In this way, the Boykivskyi type of temple, moving southwest, adopted the facade with a bell tower from Western architectural styles (Gothic and Baroque).
