A brief history of Zhdeniyevo

The village of Zhdeniyevo was first mentioned in historical sources back in 1598. According to legend, it was founded by peasants who fled from Galicia. Initially, they settled in the part of the village that is now called Kotelnytsia. Over time, they settled in a larger area along the Zhdenivka river valley. Throughout its history, the village changed its name several times, depending on whether it was part of a particular state. The Hungarians called Zhdeniyevo Szarvasháza, which means “the house of the deer”. In the 1920s and 1930s, the Czechs, who ruled Transcarpathia, was called Žďeňovo/Ždeňová. The modern name of the village of Zhdeniyevo was officially approved in 1971. The name Zhdeniyevo is sometimes used in everyday life. However, officially, until 1971, the settlement was called Zhdeneve by the Soviet authorities.

In the XVII century, Zhdeniyevo was a part of the Chinadievo dominion and was owned by the Bruchinich family. After the Kuruca uprising in 1703-1711, the village was transferred to the ownership of the counts of Schönborn in 1728 and belonged to the Lower Vereka economy of their possessions. During their reign, a forestry administration was opened in Zhdeniyiv, and several stone buildings were constructed, including a two-storey house that resembled a castle. Two stone houses from the 18th century have survived to this day.

The Schönborns actively developed forestry in Zhdeniyevo. In 1840-1843, a small sawmill was built here on their initiative. A little later, in 1889, a large steam sawmill was opened in Zhdeniyevo. This enterprise, equipped with the most modern machinery, employed up to one and a half hundred workers. Up to 25 thousand cubic metres of timber were processed here per year. The company employed 147 workers. Among them were both local residents and German colonists.

The development of forestry in Zhdeniyevo continued actively during the Czechoslovakian (1920s-1930s) and Soviet periods of its history.

After Ukraine gained its independence in 1991, the village’s tourism potential began to develop. Nowadays, Zhdeniyevo has become a popular resort visited by thousands of tourists every year.

Zhdeniyevo and its legends

Several interesting legends are associated with the village of Zhdeniyevo and its surroundings.

According to one, a girl named Eva lived in this area in ancient times. She had a boyfriend in love with her. They decided to get engaged. However, on the day of their engagement, the young groom was mobilised into the army. As a farewell, the young man carved an inscription on a tree for his beloved “Zhdy nia Evo”, which means “Wait for me Eva” in the local dialect.

According to another legend, once upon a time, on the site of modern Zhdeniyevo, four fugitives, Gitzhno, Zhdenka, Kachalo and Minho, hid in a dense forest from their enemies. After spending the night in a clearing among the trees, one of them, named Ždenka, was so impressed by the beauty of the local nature that he decided to stay here. It was he who founded modern Zhdeniyevo, which was named in his honour.

The third legend is related to a mountain called Husli. Once upon a time, an unfortunate young man named Pavlo lived near this mountain. He had a girlfriend who refused to marry him. She only mocked the unfortunate young man. One day she promised him her consent if he would play the harp at midnight on the top of the highest mountain in the area. However, the boy failed to fulfil the girl’s wish, fell down a steep slope and died. In the morning, the villagers found his body near the mountain. Since then, the girl has been cursed, and her spirit has settled in a gorge near Mount Pikuy, which the locals call “Gusli”. Guides always try to visit this gorge with tourists and tell them about this mystical legend. This story makes a particularly strong impression on tourists when told at night near a campfire.

It is located on the border of the Transcarpathian and Lviv regions and is considered the highest peak of the Vododilskyi Ridge and the entire Lviv region. The mountain has a pronounced conical shape. It is the shape of the mountain that most likely gave rise to its name, as in ancient times warriors called a spear a spear because of its pointed end. The south-western slopes of the mountain are quite steep, while the northern and northeastern sides of the mountain are more gentle.

Гора Високий Камінь

Mount Vysokyi Kamen

Another popular route is to climb to the top of the 712-metre-high Vysokyi Kamen mountain. It is located directly next to Zhdenievo. This picturesque peak is a natural monument of national importance. This mountain has the highest habitat of rare trees in the Carpathians – rock oak and black pine. Rock oaks differ from ordinary oaks by their smaller leaves, almost sessile acorns and higher wood density. The black pines on Vysokyi Kamen Mountain are real old-timers, their age is estimated at 130 years.

The best route to Vysokyi Kamen starts from the village of Zhdeniyevo and goes through the village of Pidpolozzia.

It is 6 kilometres to the top, which will take about 2 hours. The road goes through a picturesque beech and oak forest, where you can hear melodious birdsong, and at the foot of the trees you can see forest lilies framed by soft green moss and grass. Do not go to the top of the mountain immediately after the rains, as the ground is very slippery and the ascent can be very difficult. There will be plenty of difficult places during the ascent, so you should not go here with children. If you have children with you on the route, you should warn them about the difficulties of the road and make sure that they are able to overcome difficult places during the ascent.

When you reach the top, you will be offered a stunning view.
