It has preserved two places of interest, the Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (1740) and tavern-inn (XVIII century). The Cathedral used to have a miraculous icon of Jesus of Myliatyn; they believed that if you crawled on your knees around the temple three times and then bowed down to it, you could get rid of incurable diseases. Nearby, there is a mineral water lake, in the middle of which there is a fountain a few meters high.
In a charming area on a hill above the river, there is the Church of the Ascension (1680), with a remarkable seven-tiered iconostasis of the work of the outstanding artist Ivan Rutkovych. It belongs to the best masterpieces of the Halychian architectural school.
Thousands of people come here to visit the grave of the stigmatic Stepan Navrotskyi, whose hands, forehead, legs and wounds in the heart were bleeding. He also predicted many events in the modern history of Ukraine. Since the time of his burial troubles and disasters have bypassed the village of Rakobovty, and many people heal their body and soul near his grave.
The former German colony of Angeluwka was founded in 1829 from the German lumberjack families of Roman Catholic faith, who originated from Western Bohemia (now the Czech Republic). In 1934, 156 Germans lived here. There is still a church-chapel (now a church), a German burial in the local cemetery and residential buildings.
The town has an image of a stork (“busko” in Ukrainian) on its emblem. 5 rivers with 30 bridges are the reason why they also call it “Halychian Venice”. The descendants of the ancient Buzhans, led by the Slavic Prince of Bozh, are very proud of the fact that they were the first to install a monument, devoted to the Independence of Ukraine, in the country.
Busk is famous for its architectural monuments: the Palace of the Count Badeni with its park (XVIII century), the Halychian folk style wooden Church of St. Onuphrius (1680), the wooden Church of St. Paraskeva (1708) with the paintings of Leontovych and Sirskyi, and the Church of St. Stanislav (1795) are all worth seeing.
This was once an extremely popular destination among Ukrainians. The artist, Sofiia Karaffa-Korbut, was born here, and a memorial museum has been opened in her honour. In the centre of the village, the ruins of the once majestic cathedral, which once housed the miraculous icon of St Mary Major, are living their last days. The most outstanding charm of the town is the “Linden Alley of Eternal Love”, planted by Countess Veronika in memory of her love for officer Stanislav.
In this village, the Leader of the Halychian Ukraine Markiian Shashkevych spent the last years of his life; here, there is a museum to honour his memory.
Welcome to Neslukhiv, where you can visit a local historical and ethnographic museum “Treasures of Halychyna” named after Ivan Solohub with its great regional exposure in the palace of Didushytskyi.
