It has long been famous for its forests, mills and quarries, but dramatic changes in the life of the village occurred after the construction of the railway. Convenient transport links contributed to the transformation of Briukhovychi first into a recreational area for the town’s residents and subsequently into a fashionable resort, which the travellers at that time considered the best health centre of Northern Halychyna. The atmosphere of Briukhovychi is perfect for thinking about eternity and life. Therefore, it is not surprising that in the village in addition to the churches and several monasteries, various religious denominations are represented by respected institutions, including the Roman Catholic Higher Theological Seminary, the Basilian Institute of Philosophical and Theological studios, the Recollection and Entertainment Center of the Lviv Archdiocese of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church (UGCC) and the religious centre of Jehovah's Witnesses.
This part of modern Lviv once belonged to Briukhovychi, under the name Holosko Velyke. Here, on one of the hills of Roztochchia, there is the tremendous Church of the Assumption of St. Anna (1770) of the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church.
Bryukhovychi – Fort
On the hill of Ziavlenska mountains, near Briukhovychi, there is the Fort (1887-1912) built by the Austro-Hungarian government to protect the town from Tsarist Russia. The fortification consists of covered galleries with loopholes and a network of trenches. It is one of the eleven forts that surround Lviv.
Bryukhovychi – the Church
This magnificent temple was built as the Church of Christ the King (1925-1939), by the architect Marian Nikodemovych; now it is the Church of the Nativity of the UGCC.
Briukhovychi – the sanatorium “Lviv”
Once known for its famous medical institution, several preserved picturesque villas, built before the Soviet era, point to Briukhovychi’s former splendour.
Bryukhovychi – “Cheburechna”
The visiting card of the village is definitely the cafe “Cheburechna”. It is believed that everyone who comes to Briukhovychi has to taste local chebureky, a deep-fried turnover cooked with meat and cheese. Despite the simple interior and modest service, this cafe is always popular with people from different walks of life.
Bryukhovychi – the Museum of Modern Sculpture named after M. Dzyndra
The village is known not only for its chebureky, but also for the unique Museum of Modern sculpture named after Mykhailo Dzyndra. The Museum houses 808 masterpieces of abstract art of various shapes and sizes. The art style presented by the Museum is one of the most promising in the world today. This combination of form, dynamics, colour and imagination emphasizes the interaction of man, sculpture and nature, introducing visitors to Ukraine’s progressive and creative side.
Bryukhovychi – Hamulets
Here, on the slopes of the mountain, marvel at the ancient Church of St. Trinity (1756). The temple is an architectural monument of national importance and belongs to a rare type of two-chamber churches, consisting of only two log cabins. The so-called 'babynets", crowned by a dome on a small tower, is of particular interest.
Bryukhovychi – Mali Hrybovychi
In the middle of the beech forest, with Carpathian landscapes lurking in the background, there is a small goat farm “Nashi Kizonky”. Its founder, Mrs Lesya, was once cured by goat's milk; hence, she decided to breed goats and share healthy food with others. Now the farm has about ten goats, from which they make five types of soft and hard cheeses, as well as ice cream. Not far from the mini-cheese factory, there is a source where you can get fresh mineral water.
Bryukhovychi – Fish enterprise
The town has long been famous for its waters and fish. Local traditions are continued by the entrepreneurs of “Zolota Rybka”. Here, you can see the workshop where they smoke fish, enjoy several species of fish (mackerel, herring, saury, etc.) and taste three alcoholic drinks (nalyvkas), such as Dubova, Kalhanivka and Zubrivka. You can also buy anything you like to treat your friends and family.
