Imstichovo #155

The first written mention of this village dates back to 1351, when it was still called Mystichevo. Imstichov's population is almost three thousand people. Among the historical monuments here are the stone cells of the monastery of the Basilian Fathers (wall thickness of almost one meter) with deep basements and a baroque-style baroque Michael church (17th century) with paintings of the same era. According to legend, the land for the monastery was provided by a local rich Ivan Zeykan, who later became a monk. According to the legend, the present name of the village was due to the monastery: it has long been practiced exorcism (exile of evil spirits), "avenged" spirits. Over time, the first name of the village of Mysticovo was transformed into Imsticovo.
